The Annual MediLink UK Innovation Awards were recently held at the Haberdashers Hall in London. The awards celebrate the achievements of the UK health technology sectors and provide recognition of the achievements of those companies who have excelled.
“The NHS Innovations Partnership with the NHS Award,” for collaboration with the NHS that resulted in both improved business performance and benefited patient care through innovation, was awarded to Home Telehealth Limited in recognition of their work with the NHS in the provision of a new concept in telehealth-enabled care delivery for the management of people with long-term chronic conditions.
The award resulted from Home Telehealth Limited’s solutions being commissioned as an equipment supplier, but they were also recognized as a service provider delivering World Class Commissioning standards for Telehealth Managed Services through the delivery of end-to-end telehealth programs. This was achieved by providing the daily triaging of patients with long-term chronic conditions via its Belfast-based, nurse-led care center operation.
These services came into being when the directors of commissioning for the NHS Trust decided to use the services of Home Telehealth Limited as a telehealth service provider rather than purchasing equipment and running their own in-house service.
