In 2007  the TIC Salut Social Foundation performed for the first time the Map of Trends (MDT), an annual reserach to determine the level of implementation and use of ICT among the health services’ providers of the integral public network use in Catalonia (SISCAT).

Since 2019, this research universe is expanded to the degree of digitization of the basic areas of social services belonging to the Catalan Social Services System.

Millions of moments of the day Map of Tendències 2019

Thiat’s how we upgraded the research on the level of implementation of ICTs focused to a people centered care model in Catalonia: ICT and Health care Map of Trends and ICT and Social care Map of Trends.


We transfer knowledge through scientific and technological dissemination through reports, guides, manuals and publications.

03. The research

The Map of Trends (MDT) is a quantitative and qualitative study carried out annually by the Fundació TIC Salut Social since 2007.

In order to meet the level of digital transformation, the Fundació TIC Salut Social prepares a survey. The data collected from the analyzes and the results are presented in a report that we offer to the sector.

Focused on the degree of digitization and implantation of ICT, the map of Trends has two areas of study: Map of Trends in ICT and Health; i Map of Trends in ICT and Social.

The universities of study are the Provider Entities that are part of SISCAT and the basic areas of social services of the Catalan System of Social Services.

The topics addressed in the Map of Trends are the degree of digitization and debureaucratization of the public administration (health and social), the Information Systems, innovation and the Attention to the Citizenship of Catalonia.

The current provision of health services progressively includes new tools of non face-to-face attention. This new paradigm complements traditional care with new scenarios beyond the physical limits of hospitals and health centers.

The study also takes into account the increasing degree of social and health integration tin order to offer 360º centered care service.


04. Focus Groups

We set different objectives to our focus groups in order to: 

  • Identifying and promtingtechnology projects.
  • Improving the different identified project’s stages .
  • Implementing results to enhance and improve the quality of care services.
  • Sharing the acquired knowledge with our stakeholders.



We promote the creation of specialized working groups to transfer knowledge in a systematic manner to the healthcare services sector.
