D4D joined innovative NHS staff and their collaborators from the region’s universities, charities and SMEs at the twelfth annual Medipex Innovation Awards and Showcase on 23 March 2017.
Innovators from around the region gathered at Cedar Court Hotel near Wakefield for a networking event and awards ceremony where five teams were crowned winners across different innovation categories: Medical Devices and Diagnostics, GP and Community Care, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Self-Management and Service Improvement.
This year 15 teams were shortlisted for awards out of 70 applications. The awards provide a platform to showcase pioneering new ideas and technologies developed by, or with, NHS staff to improve patient care and make services more efficient. D4D collaborator ELAROS was shortlisted in the ‘Self Management’ category with ‘The Digital Bladder Diary – the first in a series of CE marked clinical patient diaries to manage and monitor long term health conditions through clinically led partnerships.’
Congratulations to all the winning innovators!
