Healthcare IT has always benefited from a strong relationship between provider organisations and suppliers to generate new products that bring benefits for patients. Please note that this category is for suppliers, not for healthcare organisations that have implemented products. This award will go to the suppliers demonstrating the most innovative product launched before Friday 8 May 2015.
Judges will be looking for well-presented entries that:
"Since winning our award both the Trust and team have been inundated with interest and now have other Trusts queuing up to buy our dashboards. This is great for the Trust as any money received can be reinvested into our front care services.
"The whole assessment process was slick and well thought out from start to finish and the actual award night was an event I now never want to miss!"
Mark Singleton - Head of Business Intelligence
"Winning an EHI Award made all sorts of people sit up and take notice. We've been funded to roll out our open source software across the whole NHS"
Fred Mayall - Consultant Cellular Pathologist
"After all the hard work that has gone into the 'myhealth@qehb' portal it was fantastic for the team to win the EHI award. It has certainly raised the profile of our system and encouraged us to achieve more in the future."
James Ferguson - Consultant Hepatologist
"Following winning the EHI Awards, this has certainly raised the profile of our work. We have experienced high volumes of enquiries from the healthcare sector wishing to discuss our involvement in the project. Our experience with the EHI Awards team has been excellent, and the awards have really ensured that the right people are hearing about the innovative work we are doing!"
Jordan Arkell - Business Relationship Executive, Blithe Computer Systems
"Winning the EHI Rising Star Award in 2014 has been a great and somewhat surreal experience. The awards night was a great event that helped highlight all the good work the team has been doing, provided lots of feel good factor, and gave an opportunity for us all to share our work and ideas with our chief executive for an evening."
David Newton - Programme Manager
"Winning the EHI Product Innovation Award 2014 for the Silhouette digital wound assessment system has given the company and our innovator customers due recognition for advancing clinical practice. It's been highly motivation for everyone to keep up the great work to improve patient care."
Achala Patel - Director
"Being publicly assessed and recognised for these efforts by such a prestigious, independent authority in the healthcare sector was extremely rewarding to everyone involved. These awards also help to boost and reinforce Patient.co.uk's and EMIS Group's authority and standing as leading and trusted healthcare brands."
Stella Bolam - Social Media and Content Manager
"Winning EHI's Digital NHS Trust of the Year 2014 has been a real feel good factor for Barts Health and has helped us to raise the profile of our healthcare informatics agenda more widely across our staff base, our executive board and to our Partners within East London. I am extremely glad we took part."
Luke Readman - Chief Information Officer
