HAS Technology has been shortlisted for the ‘Innovation in Health Tech’ category at the LaingBuisson 2020 Awards.
The annual awards celebrate industry excellence and innovation in the UK health and social care services and HAS Technology will join fellow finalists from the public, private and third sectors.
With their ARMED prevention technology, HAS Technology’s award submission showcased their innovative approach to assisting people to live more independently and to reduce falls and associated hospital admissions.
ARMED measures data associated with frailty and risk of falling, enabling those managing care to intervene at earlier stages, preventing more significant health risks. It also promotes self-management by making people more aware of a variety of indicators.
Brian Brown, Director of ARMED at HAS Technology commented; “We are so pleased to be recognised as an innovator at these national awards. ARMED is now making a difference to people in a range of health and social care settings.
“Being able to implement and manage the software remotely over the pandemic has been key to its continued success and we are thrilled to see that digital transformation is being embraced by the sector. Increasing independence and identifying risks at the earliest opportunity is central to the work of ARMED.”
ARMED was developed with support from Edinburgh Napier University and Scotland’s Digital Health and Care Institute (DHI), as well as being in the 1% of companies chosen to be a Microsoft partner.
The multi-award winning solution is currently being used by hundreds of users including councils, housing associations, telecare services, health and social care partnerships and private home care providers.
The LaingBuisson awards ceremony is planned to be held in November at the Park Plaza in London.
