Healthcare Transformation Awards
THE HEALTHCARE TRANSFORMATION AWARDS CATEGORIES ARE:
1. Utilising Digital Transformation to Better Manage Population Health
This award will celebrate genuinely innovative, results-based digital transformation programmes that have led to measurable improvements in patient care, outcomes and cost-efficiency in service provision across an entire health economy/ system.
2. Pioneering System Collaboration
Working collaboratively across organisational boundaries has benefits for everyone involved. Not only will people have more joined up support across health and social care, commissioners and providers will plan in a more coherent way to provide the highest quality health and social care to reduce inequalities in access to services and to improve outcomes.
3. Improving Patient & Community Engagement
This award seeks to recognise new services or care models that demonstrate particularly strong engagement with people who use services, their carers and communities and adopt a person-centred approach.
4. Innovation in the Care of Long Term Conditions
Innovation can take place at many different levels: at individual level through person empowerment and self-care; at the level of the consultation through a partnership approach to care planning; at the team level through multi-disciplinary approaches; at the health systems level through integrated care; at the level of communication through information technology and social media; and of course through research and development of technologies including new drugs.
5. Innovation in Improving Outcomes and Reducing Variation
Unwarranted variation in all areas of healthcare practice can result in health inequalities, wasted resources and poorer outcomes for patients. This award seeks to recognise reduction of unwarranted variation across the health and care systems as a whole. Involvement of Primary, Secondary, Community and Clinician focused engagement with population needs and identify unmet needs is key.
6. Innovation in Primary Care
This award will celebrate genuinely innovative, evidence-based primary care services and models that have led to measurable improvements in patient care, experience, outcomes and cost-efficiency.
7. Innovation in Mental Health Care
This award seeks to recognise innovation in mental health care programmes that are high impact and delivering improvements to service provision and patient outcomes. We would welcome entries covering the life course of mental health problems.
