AIMES are pleased to announce that the Connected Health Cities (CHC) programme has been named Healthcare Project of the Year at the 2018 Bionow Awards.
AIMES are a key partner on the CHC programme and provide expertise through the development of trusted research environments across the North to keep vital health data secure and safe.
The prestigious award recognises CHC’s innovative use of technology and NHS data in creating and embedding learning health systems across 19 North of England care pathway projects. The award acknowledges the step-forward that Connected Health Cities’ methodology – known as the CHC Method – has demonstrated in advancing research and health service improvement.
On accepting the award CHC’s Chief Operating Officer, Dr Amanda Lamb, said:
“I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of the many people and organisations that have dedicated themselves to the delivery of the CHC vision. Thanks to them we have been able to treat children with asthma at home rather than in hospital; coordinate better care for those with fragility or for vulnerable families; to better plan services for people with COPD, liver disorders and epilepsy; to save lives and reduce disability after a stroke; and to produce tools that can help us to tackle antibiotic usage.”
“Our scale team science model has brought together so many talented individuals from diverse backgrounds but with a shared goal of using data to improve patient experience; this award is recognition for their dedication and their impact.”
AIMES look forward to playing a key part in the future developments of the CHC project across the North.
