Digital transformation at Digital Health and Care Wales

Ifan Evans, Executive Director for Strategy at Digital Health and Care Wales, on digital transformation and the missions which drive digital transformation

Digital Health and Care Wales (DHCW) is the national delivery body for data and digital services in NHS Wales. It provides the digital services thousands depend on every day across hospitals, communities and primary care – helping staff with their work and ensuring patients receive the best care. The organisation collects and analyses vast amounts of data, using it to drive improvements and better outcomes. 

Ifan Evans is the Executive Director for Strategy. He joined DHCW in April 2022 and leads on organisational planning and performance, strategic transformation and change, developing partner relationships, and four of the largest digital transformation programmes. 

“One of the things I have been most struck by in my first six weeks at DHCW is the energy and ambition here. It’s a small organisation in growth mode, doing impressive things quickly.”  

There are five key strategic missions at Digital Health and Care Wales. An enabling platform for digital transformation; a single shared health and care record; delivering excellent digital services; driving value and innovation; and being a trusted partner.  “This underpins everything we do. We want people to work with us, and alongside us, to deliver world-class digital and data products which drive transformation in health and care.”
