The Scottish Ecosystem brings health, social care, housing, emergency services, voluntary sector, academic, industry and civic stakeholders together to create a community that exchanges knowledge and learning, and creates opportunities for collaboration and innovation that will improve the way health and care is delivered in Scotland, through the use of new innovative technology & services.
The Ecosystem is hosted by the Scottish Government’s Technology Enabled Care and Digital Healthcare Innovation Division and is governed by a strong working group with members representing the key stakeholder groups and sectors.
Our vision is that innovation in digital health and care will help the Scottish population to live longer and healthier lives, while creating new jobs for the economy.
Our stakeholder engagement and network activities reflect our ethos that knowledge exchange drives service improvement when all the relevant stakeholders are engaged.
We provide space to share lessons from implementation for multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral stakeholders to learn, inform and collaborate.
