Health Technology Wales (HTW) is a national body working to improve the quality of care in Wales. They collaborate with partners across health, social care and the technology sector to ensure an all-Wales approach. They are funded by the Welsh government and hosted within NHS Wales, but are independent of both. Their remit covers any technology or model of care in health and social care, and support in health and social care that isn't a medicine.
HTW have launched a digital open topic call in a bid to identify the next big digital health technologies for Wales. It is inviting health and social care professionals, technology developers, and members of the public to submit their digital solutions by July 31st.
Digital health technologies include apps, programmes and software like our Tailored Talks application, for use in the health or care system. Anybody can submit a topic and HTW prioritises the identification of topics with a significant expected impact on health and social care services. It is particularly interested in digital health technologies that have the potential to directly benefit patients, service users, or their carers.
Our flagship information sharing system Tailored Talks could be a great fit for this call for technologies. If you would like to find out more about how we are improving the provision of information to patients in the NHS with Tailored Talks, click here.
