The TIC Salut Social Foundation is a body belonging to the Catalan government which works to promote the development and use of ICT. We promote networking in the fields of healthcare and social welfare, help promote the development and use of ICT and networking in the field of health, keep abreast of new trends, innovation and emerging initiatives, and offer accreditation and product approval services.
The spread of ICT in our sector is unstoppable and is bound to be one of the most transformative and integrative elements in healthcare and social welfare in the future. The fact that Catalonia has a public system of universal healthcare, in conjunction with a wide variety of agents, supplier organizations and subsidiary industries, means its health sector is in a perfect position to act as an innovator and economic catalyst for new technologies.
The challenge for the coming years is to collaborate on developing lasting, consolidating policies for our sectors.
Following a proposal from the Department of Health, at the session held on September 19, 2006, the Government authorized the creation of the Fundació TIC Salut Social. From November 25, the Foundation moves its headquarter to the Salvany Building [Edifici Salvany] placed in Roc Boronat street, 81 – 95, in Barcelona, in order towork closelier and efficently with its stakeholders.
Currently, the Fundació TIC Salut Social is made up of various public administrations involved in the fields of health, social welfare and information and communication technologies, as well as for groupings of hospitals and health centers
Our main activities consist of acting as an observatory, producing our Trends Report and the Report on ICT Experiences in the sector; promoting innovations in eHealth, health 2.0 and international projects; standardization and accreditation through our Interoperability Office; plus, producing monthly publications such as the Flash TICSS newsletter and maintaining a presence on social media.
The Foundation also has three advisory boards.
