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.
