OneLondon has been awarded the IT and Digital Innovation Award at the HSJ Value Awards 2021.
The judging panel was led by a wide range of respected representatives from across the UK healthcare community, and, following an extensive and thorough process of consideration, OneLondon has been given this prestigious award in recognition of its outstanding contribution during what has been one of the most challenging periods in the history of the healthcare sector.
OneLondon is a collaboration of London’s five health and care partnerships and the London Ambulance Service – working together to transform the capital’s health and care services through the join-up of information to support faster, safer, more effective care for Londoners. The programme is supported by London’s three Academic Health Science Networks and the Greater London Authority.
OneLondon’s successes include implementation of the London Care Record – a single shared care record for London which gives clinicians a mechanism to see a joined-up picture of a person’s health and care information, available at the point of care. It acts as a single version of the truth, and is the basis for providing personal health records, and applications for clinical services delivery, population health analysis and research.
Luke Readman, OneLondon Chief Officer and Regional Director of Digital Transformation said:
“We are delighted to have been awarded the HSJ Value Award for IT and Digital Innovation. This prestigious award recognises the collaborative efforts and dedication of our OneLondon partnership as we continue to join-up health and care information across London in a legitimate and trustworthy way to support more effective care for our citizens.”
Deputy editor of the Health Service Journal Dave West offered his congratulations to all winners of the 2021 HSJ Value Awards:
“The entrants this year have been of the very best calibre and each of the winners of the HSJ Value Awards have been chosen based on their outstanding commitment to clinical excellence and operational improvements across healthcare. We all know and appreciate what an incredibly tough and testing time this has been for so many of our colleagues working in the healthcare industry – and that’s what makes it such an honour to be celebrating projects of such high standards and significance.
“We are also aware that OneLondon is not alone in supporting and growing such a culture of hard work and innovation in healthcare – with value at its core – but on this occasion, they really did stand out as delivering exceptional services and ideas. I’d therefore like to offer my congratulations to OneLondon on winning the category of IT and Digital Innovation at this year’s HSJ Value Awards.”
The HSJ Value Awards evening celebrated projects showcasing the highest levels of collaboration and outstanding improvements in care quality and efficiency made by NHS staff. The winners and those highly commended were announced across 20 categories during the HSJ Value Awards ceremony held at Manchester Central on 2 September 2021.
