ViClarity Win National Healthcare Award
June 4, 2017
We are delighted to announce that ViClarity have won the award of “Most Cost Effective Product/Service” at the IMSTA MEDTECH AWARDS 2017. The annual awards, now in their sixth year were held in Croke Park last night and brought together developers, providers and suppliers of effective healthcare solutions for the health system in Ireland. There were eight awards up for grabs on the night ranging from “Best Improvement In Patient Safety” to ViClarity’s category “Most Cost Effective Product/Service.
ViClarity CEO, Ogie Sheehy was in attendance on the night and collected the IMSTA Award from MC Anton Savage and Colman Casey from The Health Innovation Hub who sponsored the award.
After a rigorous selection process ViClarity were shortlisted for the award and invited by the Health Innovation Hub to sit at their table on the night. The judges researched and scrutinised the shortlisted companies before finally selecting ViClarity as the winner of the award.
ViClarity were selected as the most cost effective product/service due to their work with healthcare facilities in the Public and Private sector in Ireland and the UK in areas such as Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Residential Care, Disability Care and Home Care. The solution is used daily in these healthcare facilities to automate the process of auditing and compliance to regulations such as HIQA, CQC and JCI. It provides healthcare organisations with clear insights into areas of non – conformance to regulations and allows them to assign trackable actions to areas of concern. The solution is proven to save healthcare organisations 60% on time spent collecting and compiling audit data by automating the process and replacing old pen and paper audits.
One such case is the HSE Kerry Community Hospital who calculated a saving of 124 hours per year using ViClarity to monitor and improve quality through the development of an automated audit tool. The hospital transitioned from a time consuming paper based process which failed to provide real time data and trend analysis consistently throughout the year to an automated solution that monitored evidenced based practices to regulatory standards and provided exception reports with actions at a click of a button.
On receiving the award ViClarity CEO, Ogie Sheehy said:
“I am delighted to have received such a prestigious award. It’s a true testament to the hard work of the ViClarity team and this award is recognition for the full team.”
Ogie also commented on what it means to provide such a cost effective product to the healthcare market.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for contribution to the improvement in quality of care in the Irish Healthcare sector and we look forward to continuing to grow this market and add more value for our customers.”
