HCI are the people behind the national Health and Care Video Library and the CONNECTPlus multiple conditions app.
In 2016 the Health and Care Innovations LLP partnership was formed between Rocklands Media Limited and Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust.
We began trading as Health and Care Videos and predominantly produced video content, but over time our capabilities and expertise has broadened. We are now known as HCI and have a highly skilled team working in the implementation and delivery of large scale digital projects; in-house software developers producing apps, elearning platforms and websites; dedicated graphic designers and marketing specialists supporting and driving communications for our clients.

It’s both the most challenging and rewarding business that I have been involved in. Challenging because we are creating a new approach and trying to launch it at a difficult time for the NHS, and rewarding because we can see the difference it is making to the demand and capacity in the health system, and every day we experience the improvement it makes to people’s lives.
I enjoy knowing that we are creating tools and resources for people who really need them and benefit from us doing so! My role here doesn’t feel so much like a job, more of a rewarding challenge that is ever shifting in it’s scope.
HCI actively encourages continued professional development, and provides exciting opportunities where I can learn.
Diversity is incredibly important to the team; one key point on this is that we have a development team that is 66% women.
It also helps having a really cute and fluffy puppy in work with us!
This company has a very positive working environment and there’s always room for learning new skills. Flexible working plus supportive and enthusiastic teams make the job even better.
Key highlights for me include our quarterly meetings and charitable fundraisers that bring everyone together and raise money for a good cause.
HCI allows me to use filmmaking, which I have a passion for, to create useful and engaging content for a beneficial cause; improving the overall health and wellbeing of individuals up and down the country.
I love the problem solving element of working at HCI. We take complex academic information and find clear, simple and visual ways to communicate the same message while ensuring it is easily understood by a wider audience. This can be one of the most challenging parts of the job, but it can often be the most rewarding.
Seeing how design within healthcare can be genuinely helpful gives me a huge boost. Whether that’s educating people on a condition, reducing anxiety, offering support or saving the organisation money, our solutions help!
It’s great to be part of a team that’s passionate about making digital improvements in healthcare. We are all dedicated to making a real difference and we always find a way of making things work. Even if we don’t know the answer right away, we won’t stop till we come up with a solution - and we learn a lot along the way.
We’re all skilled in our own fields, and HCI brings all of us together to make positive things happen in healthcare.
There is always a great atmosphere working at HCI; we have a fantastic team that works hard and we work collectively sharing ideas. As individuals, we’re encouraged to learn new skills and go outside of our comfort zone, which is usually pretty exciting!
When times get tough, we come together and work out how we can overcome the hurdles, and we can usually do it with some humour and fun along the way.
It’s great that HCI is so supportive of personal development and learning new skills.
I think, more than anything, it’s the team at HCI that makes a day in the office enjoyable. We have such a range of highly skilled people that all work extremely well together on a range of projects. One minute everyone’s quietly concentrating, then the next the room will be full of laughter. Never a dull moment here!
Working at HCI pushes me to learn new things and develop my skills. I’ve managed to forge a role for myself within the team, and now I feel like I’m really making a difference within healthcare nationwide. The team make even the most monotonous tasks fun, and the working atmosphere is always fantastic.
