We are pleased to announce that NorthWest EHealth have been named as one of the finalists in the Best Patient-Focused Technological Development category at the Annual Clinical and Research Excellence Awards. This year, the awards ceremony is taking place at the State Room in Boston on the 5th April 2017 where the winners will be announced.
The Clinical and Research Excellence Awards honour and applaud companies working to improve human lives through clinical research and development. The judging panel is comprised of leading figures from the biopharmaceutical, CRO and diagnostic industries.
NorthWest EHealth Limited has been nominated as a finalist for the Linked Database System Tool. The Linked Database System has been developed to support the collection of real world evidence, from individually consented patients, for research. Combining data feeds from hospital and primary care systems with supplementary feeds from pharmacy, community and external NHS organisations, the LDS is linked to a fully validated electronic Case Report Form (eCRF). This ensures prompt safety monitoring and reporting of adverse events using the ICH E2B standard. The system collects ongoing information about each study participant’s medications, symptoms and use of healthcare facilities, and is used both to provide safety monitoring and to collect research data for the study.
Professor Martin Gibson, Chief Executive Officer of NorthWest EHealth Limited is delighted that the company has been announced as a finalist.
‘I am thrilled that NorthWest EHealth have been recognised in this prestigious category. We work hard to deliver solutions to improve patients’ lives. To be recognised for our efforts is an honour. We are looking forward to celebrating our team’s achievement along with the other nominees at the awards event.’
Partners and Sponsors of The Clinical Research Excellence Awards include ICON, Cytel, EBD, BioMedTracker, Invivo, Pharmaprojects, Sitetrove, The Pink Sheet and Trialtrove.
