About Us

What we do

Since its inception in 2015, the Technology Enabled Care (TEC) Programme has systematically built the foundations, both digital and cultural, that have enabled Scotland’s citizens to benefit from the range of digital public health and care services that became a lifeline for many during the COVID pandemic.

Over time we have built strong partnerships and collaborations across government departments; local government; health boards; scrutiny, improvement and membership bodies; delivery and advocacy organisations and citizens themselves. It is the strength of these sustained partnerships that has enabled us to build national capacity over time and allowed for the necessary acceleration of implementation in response to the pandemic.

Our vision is that Scotland is an international leader in TEC, supporting more people to live longer, healthier lives at home or in community settings.

Digital Citizen Delivery Plan 21-22

Digital Citizen Delivery Plan 2021-2022

We have set out four key strategic priorities for 2021/22 through which we will deliver our objectives. The range of programmes and deliverables set out are mutually supportive, but for ease of reading the main programmes are each set under one of the priorities, although they contribute to all:

  1. Addressing Inequalities and Promoting Inclusion
  2. Engaging citizens, staff and services through Co-design and Participation
  3. Redesigning Services – Improving Citizen Access/Promoting Wellbeing
  4. Innovating to Support Transformation
