One of its kind in covering most of healthcare’s data ecosystem, D&D has gone from strength to strength since their inception. “I don’t think it’s the case that the problems in healthcare can just be solved by more money, more staff or people working longer hours. They will be solved by better, more advanced technology and trusted partners.” Said CEO, Orlando Agrippa. “I’m truly excited to have David on board. He will provide expertise in leadership and innovation as we strive to make more Global Digital Exemplars a reality and meet the government’s commitment to a more digital NHS.”
