Invatech’s Proactive Care System wins 2016 Health Service Journal award
Invatec is delighted to have won the 2016 Health Service Journal award for ‘Improving Care with Technology’ which was awarded at a ceremony at the InterContinental Hotel in London on the 23 November 2016.
Now in their 35th Year, the HSJ Awards are amongst the most keenly sought-after accolades in British healthcare, celebrating and promoting the finest achievements in innovation and practice.
Professor Clive Bowman, Chair of Invatec Health, commented:
“The Invatech team is delighted that the Proactive Care System has won the HSJ award. It is welcome recognition for the innovative and pioneering work the company has achieved in translating a system that enhances safety and efficiency affordably for care homes. We are very proud that the judges have recognised the positive impact of the Proactive Care System in the face of strong competition.”
The winning Invatech entry was based on a joint submission by Invatech, Beacon Digital Health and Cardiff University in relation to its Welsh Government-supported project to implement and evaluate an innovative electronic medicines management system for care homes. The PCS system led to a reduction in medicines returned to pharmacies and a drop in overstocks at care homes, with an estimated potential saving across Wales of up to £4.6 million per year.
