Digital Technology Assessment Criteria (DTAC)

The Digital Technology Assessment Criteria for health and social care (DTAC) gives staff, patients and citizens confidence that the digital health tools they use meet our clinical safety, data protection, technical security, interoperability and usability and accessibility standards.

It is the new national baseline criteria for digital health technologies into the NHS and social care. It is designed to be used by suppliers to build technology and healthcare organisations to build and to buy technologies that meet our minimum baseline standards.

The DTAC is available as a document (ODT, 132KB) that you can download and print.

Please download the assessment criteria at the point of use, to make sure you’re using the most up to date version.
