Digital Health and Care Wales (formally known as NWIS) are a relatively new Special Health Authority, tasked with driving the digital transformation needed for better health and care in Wales. Following recent digital investment, the authority plays a leading role in delivering a range of national programmes needed for modern technology-enabled healthcare.
Key responsibilities include:
- Mobilising digital transformation and ensuring high quality care
- Expanding access to the Digital Health and Care Record
- Delivering high-quality digital services
- Enabling big data analysis for better outcomes
Digital Health and Care Wales came to us because they wanted an in-depth and independent review of four technology areas – Security Monitoring, Vulnerability Management, Secure File Share and Security Software Development. Our task was to review the technology areas against appropriate cyber security methodologies, perform a gap analysis and provide a roadmap of recommended improvements.
