Last night’s HSJ Digital Awards showcased the best in NHS technological innovation and adoption, celebrating the achievements of individuals and teams driving digital transformation in healthcare.

In the awards’ second year, the number of categories was expanded from 19 to 23, reflecting the growing impact of digital services across the NHS.

The event at the Manchester Central Convention Complex was hosted by top comedian Hal Cruttenden, attended by over 1,000 attendees representing the 191 finalists, and supported by headline partner Tech Mahindra.

Co-hosting, HSJ editor Alastair McLellan said that whichever party takes power at the general election, their plans for the NHS were unlikely to involve immediate, significant investment.

“Instead, the answers will be sought in ‘reform’ and ‘productivity’ – and at the vanguard of both will be the increased use of technology… and you, the individuals and teams represented on the shortlist for the second HSJ Digital Awards.

“The robust competition and entries from various regions and sectors underscore the widespread integration of technology in healthcare.”

The success of the HSJ Digital Awards was underpinned by the expertise of 95 judges, who meticulously evaluated the entries, said Mr McLellan. “Their dedication and insight have been instrumental in the event’s growing credibility and impact.”
