Contribution to Scottish Government priorities

11. HIS supports the delivery of the Scottish Government's Quality Strategy and specifically the outcomes of the Health and Social Care Delivery Plan[12]. This is set out in HIS' Strategic Plan, Making Care Better, and through its five strategic priorities:

  • Enable people to make informed decisions about their own care and treatment.
  • Help health and social care organisations to redesign and continuously improve services for people.
  • Provide evidence and share knowledge that enables people to get the best out of the services that they use and help services to improve.
  • Provide and embed quality assurance that gives people confidence in the quality and sustainability of services and supports providers to improve.
  • Help to make best use of all the resources committed to health and social care.
