HCT wins at the HSJ DIGITAL Award 2024!

HCT is proud to announce that  the Children and Young People’s Therapies Service – Digital Referral in and Automation to SystmOne projects has been named as the winner of the Driving Change through AI and Automation category, at the HSJ Digital Awards 2024, recognising excellence in digitising, connecting, and transforming health and care.

Winners from a total of 23 categories, were announced during a ceremony held at Manchester Central on 6 June 2024, hosted by comedian and writer, Hal Cruttenden and where the achievements of 191 shortlisted finalists (from an impressive 343 entries) were celebrated.

The HSJ Digital Awards are fast becoming an opportunity to recognise and applaud the power of digital products, projects and services to transform care delivery, enhance efficiency, and improve patient outcomes.

This highly competitive judging process strives to ensure that the most effective digital innovations can be “celebrated, scaled and spread”, and provide both a short and long-term springboard for adoption and roll out of successful initiatives.

A Trust spokesperson said, “We are just so proud to have been selected as the winners of the Driving Change through AI and Automation award, which truly acknowledges the inspired efforts and ideas of our teams who worked so hard to ensure we could successfully deliver Children and Young People’s Therapies Service – Digital Referral in and Automation to SystmOne project.

“To be recognised in this way, in only the second ever HSJ Digital Awards, really is a great honour felt by all those involved. There’s no doubt that this will encourage us and our colleagues to continue developing, devising, delivering and sharing our knowledge and experience of digital services and innovation.”

Categories cover many aspects of the health and social care sector, demonstrating how digital initiatives can help to improve ‘hard to tackle’ issues such as reducing inequalities; improving mental health through digital services; assisting with the ongoing move to net zero and enhancing workforce engagement, productivity, and wellbeing.

Reflecting the growth and innovation within the sector, 5 new categories were also added to the 2024 awards programme, including driving change through AI and automation and Digital Organisation of the Year.

HSJ editor Alastair McLellan adds: “Following such a successful launch last year, it really is great to be back, recognising and celebrating the achievements of so many digital innovators within our health and social care sector. And, it’s amazing to see that the level of interest and engagement in these relatively new awards is continuing to grow – which demonstrates the commitment and enthusiasm from so many experts and leaders working in this field.

“Well done HCT for the part you’re playing in helping to ‘switch up’ the conversation around the current digital agenda and for taking the opportunity to benchmark your own successes against the country’s leading NHS and digital health sector organisations and projects. In my opinion, an HSJ Digital Award is an independent stamp of approval for your projects from a brand that makes your Chief Executive take notice and as ever, I look forward to seeing what else our winners go on to achieve.”.

The winners were selected following a rigorous two-stage judging process by a group of 93 judges ahead of the HSJ Digital 2024 awards ceremony. The full list of Winners and those Highly Commended for the 2024 HSJ Digital Awards can be found at https://digitalawards.hsj.co.uk/winners-2024.
