NES was a key partner delivering a smart phone app which helps clinicians cut sepsis deaths in Scotland.

 

Committed to digital

Christopher Wroath, NES director of digital transformation, said: “We live in a rapidly changing world and health workers increasingly need to access help and information at any time, any place and on any device. We are committed to pushing the boundaries of technology to deliver education that enables excellence in health and care for the people of Scotland.

“NES has been shortlisted for our innovation in the field of public-sector software development, the commitment to adopting a Digital by Default model and the innovative development of NES resources, putting users at the heart of our systems.”

The winner of the Champion Award will be announced at the annual AXA PPP Health Tech and You Awards, co-founded by the Design Museum, AXA PPP healthcare and 2020Health in London on 25th April. Evaluation criteria includes the recent impact that the individual or organisation has had in the field, the evidence of impact and demonstrable innovation.
