Scalability SIG

Market Needs

As most sales of healthcare technology in the UK market continue to be small, insufficient attention is often paid to designing scalability into both the technical and operational elements of the technology in order to enable service provision that works as well at 10 users as one million.

Scope of SIG

To look at both the technical and operational aspects of health technology scalability to produce a set of guidelines to use at the design stage to help developers design for optimal scalability.


As of DHACA Day III in London, this SIG has not yet started activities, and for the time being all other SIGs are asked to continue to see “scalability” as part of their considerations.

Membership of this SIG is not being actively pursued
