We have been shortlisted for a HSJ Digital Award!

We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for a Health Service Journal (HSJ) Digital Award.

This nomination comes as welcome recognition of the hard work achieved by Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust’s Interweave team and their partners, who are involved in the integration of shared care records across Yorkshire and the Humber and beyond.

The award shortlist is in the Digital Clinical Safety category for Championing Clinical Risk Management and Safety Culture.

From the outset, this programme of work committed itself to working with our partners to prioritise patient safety and ensure accurate, secure data sharing.
As the programme seeks to connect various systems and sites, the team recognised the importance of creating a community of Clinical Safety Officers (CSOs) and experts. Working closely together with their ICS partners, the Interweave team dedicated itself to improved working processes and upholding clinical safety as the golden thread the runs throughout all that they do.

Lee Rickles, CIO at Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“I’m pleased to see we have been shortlisted for the Digital Clinical Safety Award. 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 uphold high levels of quality care and safety. I’d like to thank everyone involved for their continued collaborative efforts and hard work.”

Rebecca Wilson, Clinical Safety Lead at Interweave until last year, said:

“I’m thrilled to see the team have been shortlisted for this award! While in post, we jointly developed new models of clinical risk management, engaged with the onboarding teams, and really drove the ambition forward.

The engagement from our ISC leads made this possible, aiding in highlighting relevant standards, the approach and, together, we ensured safe and accurate patient data was assured. I’m glad to see this remains a key attribute of the programme and that the team continues to champion clinical safety. Fingers crossed for a win!”

Winners will be announced at the HSJ Digital Awards ceremony on Thursday 6 June.
