About us

We are a new Special Health Authority created to take forward the digital transformation needed for better health and care in Wales, making services more accessible and sustainable while supporting personal health and well-being. 

Building on recent digital investment, we have a leading role in delivering the national programmes needed for modern technology-enabled healthcare. These are large-scale developments that will make a significant difference to the people of Wales. 

As a new organisation we have a bold and ambitious programme of integration and innovation that includes expansion of the digital patient record and the creation of a world-leading national data resource, improving the way data is collected, shared and used. 

Key responsibilities are: 

  • Mobilising digital transformation and ensuring high quality care 

  • Expanding access to the Digital Health and Care Record 

  • Delivering high-quality digital services 

  • Enabling big data analysis for better outcomes  

To deliver the digital aims of Welsh Government and to ensure the very best digital solutions for the people of Wales, we work collaboratively with  health and care professionals, patients and public, industry and academia. 

We are led by a Board made up of executive directors and independent members, which is our most senior decision-making body. 

While many of our staff are working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have a Head Office in Cardiff and smaller offices in Swansea, Mold, Pontypool and Pencoed.  Find out more about our offices here.
