A quick piece of breaking news: Consultant Connect has been shortlisted in 2 categories for the HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards. The categories are:
- The use of Information Technology to drive value in clinical services
In the words of HSJ, “The HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards seek to recognise and reward outstanding efficiency and improvement by the NHS”. Being shortlisted is a major achievement for Consultant Connect as there were hundreds of entries this year.
Jonathan Patrick, Director of Consultant Connect, had this to say: “We’re delighted to have been shortlisted in both categories for the ground breaking work we have done in partnership with North East Essex CCG. Consultant Connect has been helping hundreds of patients in North East Essex to avoid unnecessary trips to hospital, both for elective referrals and the Emergency Room. Everyone involved in the project – us, the CCG and the provider – has been delighted with the results, as have the clinicians using it. But this is the first independent, external recognition of what we are doing and that’s a great feeling for the team”.
“Since the North East Essex project launched in June last year, Consultant Connect has grown to offer its service in 15 CCG areas covering more than 4 million patients. It’s been tremendously rewarding and a lot of fun. The HSJ Awards are the icing on the cake”.
The winners of the HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards will be announced on 24 May.
