Double health tech award win for Cirencester software company’s digital pre-op platform

In Touch with Health

Cirencester based healthcare technology specialist, Intouch with Health, has won two healthcare industry awards recognising the achievements of its digital pre-operative assessment platform, Synopsis.

The company has scooped titles at the Health Tech Digital Awards 2020, and the Forward Healthcare Awards 2020.

Intouch with Health was shortlisted in both awards for its project with Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, in recognition of the significant results achieved since its Synopsis iQ and Synopsis Home products were deployed across the Trust in February 2020.

Synopsis won the ‘Best Healthcare Management Solution’ category at the Health Tech Digital Awards and the ‘Enhancing Care through Technology’ category at the Forward Healthcare Awards 2020. In the same category in the Forward Healthcare Awards, Oxford VR was awarded Highly Commended  for its social engagement platform.

Both accolades were awarded following an extensive grading process conducted by independent judging panels. This involved examining the pre-deployment, evidenced-based research conducted by the Intouch team to outline the impact the digital pre-operative solution would make, alongside post-deployment data from Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, evidencing the changes and results the solutions have achieved.

Mike Sanders, chief executive officer at Intouch with Health said: “In a year that has seen significant challenges presented to healthcare and the NHS, Synopsis iQ and Synopsis Home have been vital in helping our customers restart their elective procedures.

“I am thrilled for the whole Intouch with Heath team and especially those closely involved with Synopsis that their hard work has been recognised. I would also like to thank the team at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, expertly led by Rachel Foley. The entire team at Worcestershire have been a pleasure to work with throughout the project.”

Another regional company which also won a Health Tech Digital Award was High Wycombe-based IMMJ Systems. The company won Best COVID-19 Software Solution to Support Virtual Clinics for its MediViewer. IMMJ Systems is built on the collective experience of the management team who have worked for many years in healthcare, technology, and business. Having been involved at the ‘sharp end’ of delivering healthcare solutions involving the digitising of patient records, we have acquired extensive knowledge and understanding of the operational challenges facing NHS organisations who are beginning their paperless journey. No other clinical EDM software provider has secured as many contracts wins as IMMJ Systems in the last 3 years in secondary care. This is demonstrated due to not only our unique product architecture and usability but emphasis on the excellence of our implementation capability.
