Technology designed specifically to improve the application, management and monitoring of care is having a revolutionary effect across the sector, inspiring the health secretary to “bring NHS and social care technology into the 21st century”.
Innovations which can improve the safety of patients in the health and care system should be encouraged and implemented. Products might have a specific medical purpose which has demonstrable improvements to patient safety, or they might be general applications purposefully for the enhancement of safety.
With such a wide range of products and services on offer within varying disciplines judges will be looking specifically for improvements in patient safety as a result of the implementation of a health technology.
Entries are welcomed from across NHS and public health and care sector. Private suppliers and partners may apply in collaboration with the NHS in the UK, but are ineligible to enter alone. Please note the entry must provide a clear case study surrounding the implementation or use of the technology – advertorials for a specific product or service will not be accepted.
