EHI Awards Recognise Global Digital Exemplars

EHI Awards 2017Four NHS foundation trusts are in the running for a new award to recognise the best global digital exemplar of the year. Cambridge University Hospitals, Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals, Oxford University Hospitals, and Royal Berkshire NHS foundation trusts have been shortlisted in the new category of the EHI Awards 2017.

Teams from the four organisations will now attend a judging day on 30 October. In total, 49 individuals and organisations have been shortlisted in ten categories of this year's awards, which are being co-located with the EHI Live conference and exhibition for the first time.

The awards will be presented on the first day of EHI Live 2017, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on 31 October and 1 November, with the presentation followed by a celebration drinks reception.

Lead judge Jonathan Wallace, Professor of Innovation at the School of Computing at Ulster University, said: "The EHI Awards 2017 are the only awards dedicated to healthcare IT. The EHI Awards have always attracted a strong set of entries reflecting the latest developments in health and care technology, and this year has been no exception.

"The judges have already enjoyed learning about some of the great projects that are going on across the UK to improve the efficiency and safety of healthcare, and to support frontline staff and patients. We now look forward to meeting the shortlisted entrants; and to seeing the winners presented with their awards at one of the highlights of this year's EHI Live."

The global digital exemplars programme was set up by NHS England following a review of NHS IT by US expert Professor Robert Wachter. Sixteen acute trusts and seven mental health trusts were announced as global digital exemplars last year, and eighteen acute trusts were named as 'fast followers' earlier this month.

The global digital exemplars and their fast followers will deploy the very latest IT themselves and develop a blueprint for further trusts to follow.

Cambridge University Hospitals, Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals and Oxford University Hospitals NHS foundation trusts are all global digital exemplars. Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust is Oxford’s fast follower, and entered the awards for its work on a cardiology system.

The other categories in this year’s awards are: chief clinical information officer of the year, chief information officer of the year, healthcare industry leader (a people's choice award), best trust or health board of the year, best system or initiative adoption or roll-out, best mental health initiative, best nursing technology, best app for clinicians, and best app for patients and carers.

Five individuals, teams or projects have been shortlisted in each category. EHI Live is the UK's leading event for healthcare IT, and will celebrate its tenth edition by incorporating the awards for the first time, to help celebrate success in the industry.
