Prestigious HSJ Digital Award win for NHS Trust

Our Yorkshire & Humber Care Record (YHCR) has been awarded Highly Commended in the Digital Clinical Safety Award category at the prestigious Health Service Journal (HSJ) Digital Awards 2024.

The awards ceremony held on Thursday 6 June in Manchester celebrated the outstanding contributions of staff and organisations working to improve patient care through innovations and digital technology.

The Digital Clinical Safety Award category highlights where digital technologies are enhancing safety by ensuring that critical information is provided not only in a timely way, but also making them more efficient and reducing the risk for errors. The winning project showcased the importance of clinical risk management and safety culture, whilst optimising integration into regional Shared Care Records across Yorkshire and the Humber.

From the outset, this programme of work committed to working with our partners to prioritise patient safety and ensure accurate, secure data sharing. By recognising the positive impact a community of Clinical Safety Officers and experts could make, and through working closely together with their ICS partners, the YHCR team improved working processes and continues to uphold clinical safety as the golden thread that runs throughout all that they do.

Lee Rickles, Chief Information Officer, said, “This is fantastic recognition of the team’s ongoing dedication to developing technologies and processes, which, in turn, support a variety of health and social care organisations to maintain high levels of quality care and patient safety. I’d like to congratulate everyone involved for their continued collaborative efforts and hard work.”

Michele Moran, Chief Executive of Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust said, “We are absolutely delighted to receive Highly Commended in this award. It recognises the innovation represented by the Yorkshire & Humber Care Record in ensuring we are delivering an efficient and exceptional level of care to our patients. This remains our Trust’s priority throughout all the work we do through our services”
