Cloud2 finalists in HSJ awards 2016

Cloud2, a Yorkshire-based Microsoft partner providing digital transformation solutions to the NHS has today announced it has been named a finalist in the 2016 HSJ awards Awards for the Improving Care with Technology category.

The company was honoured among a field of top technology providers to the health sector for demonstrating how GPs in South London slashed unnecessary hospital referrals through excellence in innovation and implementation of clinical solutions in the NHS.

“I’m delighted to be shortlisted for the most coveted health awards in the UK”, said Simon Hudson, Director and Co-Founder of Cloud2. “It’s fantastic to see the increased interest in Kinesis, with recent coverage in The Guardian Health Professionals, Primary Care Reports and now HSJ.” Continues Hudson.

“It’s a testament to the NHS using technologies and innovations associated to adopt new pathways of care which improve patient care and relationships between primary care and secondary care”.

Shortlisted entrants demonstrated outstanding practice and innovation that helped to improve patient care and enhance value and efficiency and have overcome fierce competition to be judged as among UK healthcare’s leading exponents. The shortlisted organisations will now complete presentations and interviews to a judging panel made up of senior and influential figures from the health sector. These include:

  • Sir David Dalton, Chief Executive, Salford Royal Foundation Trust
  • Professor Steve Field, Chief Inspector of General Practice, CQC
  • Jonathan Fielden, Director of Specialised Commissioning, NHS England
  • Sir Malcolm Grant, Chair, NHS England
  • Ian Dodge, National Director of Commissioning Strategy, NHS England

Alastair McLellan, Editor, HSJ, said:

“With the NHS experiencing a tough time as funding fails to keep up with demand, the HSJ Awards are once again the best reminder of the excellence the service is capable of. Taken together the entries to the HSJ Awards represent work which, directly or indirectly, has saved thousands of lives and enhanced many times that number.”

The awards have been recognising, celebrating, and promoting the finest achievements in NHS, and showcasing them to the NHS’ most influential leaders for 35 years. The winners will be announced on 23rd November at London’s Intercontinental, O2.
