Cupris Health has won the Value and Improvement in Telehealth category at the 2015 Health Service Journal (HSJ) Value in Healthcare Awards, held on 22 September at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
The awards had a record breaking year for entries with more organisations than ever before demonstrating that they are striving to improve value and efficiency in healthcare. From 532 entries, 140 organisations were shortlisted and 21 organisations have been judged to be leading the way in this increasingly important area and crowned the winners last night.
The winning organisations were judged by a judging panel made up of senior and influential figures from the health sector.
◾Charles Alessi, Chairman, National Association of Primary Care
◾Professor Jonathan Kay, Clinical Informatics Director, NHS England
◾Michael MacDonnell, Head of Strategy, NHS England
◾Robert Knott, National Director NHS Procurement, Department of Health
Cupris Health won in recognition of not only having clear benefits for patients, but benefits for the health service as a whole. Their smartphone otoscope and remote communication platform is simple to use, but truly innovative. It has enormous potential with all health sectors both nationally as well as internationally.
Mike Pallett, CEO of Cupris Health, comments “as a small startup, winning such a prestigious award is great validation of the work we are doing to improve health delivery in the NHS and gives us confidence as we look to continue to develop in the coming months. I would like to thank InnovationRCA, Innovate UK and our investors for their support. Special thanks goes to SBRI Healthcare for their invaluable contribution to our work in the NHS.”
The awards were a great evening of recognition and celebration for all the organisations making steps to greatly improve efficiency and value, in both back office functions and clinical initiatives in healthcare. Thank you to all of our sponsors, supporters and entrants for an inspirational evening.
