What is DHCNI?

Digital Health and Care NI (DHCNI) is the data and technology lead to the health and social care system in Northern Ireland. Our mission is to harness the power of digital to improve health and care for our population, while improving working practices for all HSC staff.

We will:

  • Ensure that everyone’s data is protected by assuring the quality, safety and security of data and information flows across the health and social care sector.
  • Empower individuals to use digital, if they choose to do so, to care for themselves and take control of their own health and wellbeing.
  • Provide our staff with access to high quality information, equipped with the digital resources they need to deliver safe, high quality and efficient care that meet regional and local need.
  • Equip HSCNI to be joined-up, efficient with informed patient journeys, based on secure, real-time patient data.
  • Make HSCNI the system that innovators want to come to learn about informatics excellence.
