Two NHS projects in the north have been shortlisted at the Holyrood Digital Health and Care Awards.
‘Attend Anywhere’, a platform which enables patients to access an appointment with a doctor from their own home, has been nominated for the category of Patient Centered Care.
The team have also been nominated for The Mobile Health Award, for their creation of Morse, an app enabling healthcare professionals to take and work with patient data offline.
NHS Western Isles Chief Executive Gordon Jamieson said: “As remote and rural islands, we have a responsibility to our patients in the Western Isles to ensure that services are available to them as efficiently and as safely as possible, despite the obvious additional challenges we face in terms of our geography. Both of these excellent systems are improving patient care in different ways, and both demonstrate the Board’s commitment to becoming a world leader in the application of telehealth, to improve how we care for patients.”
