Company Connecting's Scottish Healthcare and Digital Health infographic is a timely publication of information based on Company Connecting data; the authoritative source of information on IT/tech SMEs in the UK. It is highly relevant to the Scottish Government's recent request for information on the digital health industry, a request undoubtedly made in recognition of the huge growth currently being seen in the industry.

The infographic shows the variety of skills in Scottish digital health and the sectors these skills are most commonly deployed in. It also displays the geographic locations where Digital Health activities are based and the top 10 function areas for Scottish IT companies in the Healthcare / Digital Health sector. This gives the clearest available idea of what Digital Health actually looks like in Scotland.
