PSIAMS Scoops Prestigious Healthcare Innovation Award

PSIAMS Systems has won a prestigious award celebrating the very best of innovation in healthcare around the West Midlands.

PSIAMS was given the gong in the Social Enterprise category of the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN)’s second annual Celebration of Innovation Awards.

Around 300 people from across the region’s NHS, industry, academia, third sector and patient population gathered at the Hilton Metropole at Birmingham’s NEC on 20 July to see PSIAMS lift the award.

The awards were established in 2016 to recognise and celebrate the work of individuals and organisations in developing better healthcare and increasing wealth for local people, and the ceremony will provide an opportunity to celebrate achievements from across the West Midlands.

107 entries were submitted across the 12 categories, which were assessed by a panel of experts to choose the eventual winner.

PSIAMS won the Social Enterprise Award (sponsored by i-SE), for their collaborative approach to healthcare across the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, allowing the sector to scale and present solutions to divert and reduce the pressure of health services.

Dr Christopher Parker, Managing Director of the WMAHSN, said: “We are absolutely delighted that PSIAMS won the Social Enterprise Award.

“It was so challenging to pick out the winners from such a strong field. Every judge was in agreement that all the submissions showed an astonishing breadth of scope or approaches that were truly innovative and able to transform patient care, provide solutions to significant challenges or break down barriers across our region. It was truly inspiring to be involved in judging the entries.”

Mark Ellerby, Director PSIAMS Systems, said: “The Award recognises the hard work the PSIAMS team have put into developing innovative solutions and our disruptive approach in the sectors we work in.

“With the support of Dudley CCG, Dudley MBC and our growing customers base we now have over 350 system users operating across, not only in Dudley, but also Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Solihull, Warwickshire and Leeds. Our solutions now include case management, asset management, HR, outcomes measurement and web integration…to name just a few.”
