The implementation of ICT in our sector is already unstoppable and is seen as one of the most transformative and integrating elements of the health and social welfare of the future. The fact that health in Catalonia includes 100% of the population within a framework of universal and public coverage, together with the involvement of a great diversity of agents, supplier organizations and subsidiary industries – puts the health and healthcare sectors social welfare in an excellent situation to act as innovators and economic dynamizers in the sector of new technologies.
The challenge for the coming years is to work together for the development of inclusive and continuous policies with our sectors.
Based on a proposal from the Department of Health, in the session of September 19, 2006, the Government authorized the creation of the ICT and Health Center Foundation. It was set up in Mataró on 9 October as part of the TecnoCampus Mataró-Maresme technology park. On November 25, the Foundation moved its headquarters to the Salvany Building on Carrer Roc Boronat, 81 – 95, Barcelona, with the aim of working more efficiently and sustainably with the different agents and entities in its ecosystem.
Currently, Fundación 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 groups of hospitals and health centers.
