Now in its 21st year, the Irish Medical Times has announced the shortlist of contenders for the 2022 Irish Healthcare Awards. Two projects evolved by OpenApp in collaboration with the Health Service Executive (HSE), were shortlisted for these Awards, as judged by physicians, educators, patient advocates, medical journalists and the pharmaceutical industry.

Best Use of Information Technology

Within the Health Atlas Ireland suite, OpenApp's Atlas Finder Module, a custom web application developed in collaboration with National Health Intelligence Unit HSE. Access is provided throughout the HSE. It allows users to identify address locations in the context of local health services and their catchment areas. It also allow users to profile the demography of any health service area using CSO Census 2016 and population projections, together with estimates of local morbidity and health benefit/risk. Users can view service sites (hospitals, health centres, GP practices etc/) and health service boundaries in the context of population density and affluence/deprivation patterns.

The Atlas Finder Module has been nominated for Best Use of Information Technology.

"Seeing the work of the National Health Intelligence Unit and OpenApp being recognised at these national awards is very rewarding", said Con Hennessy, OpenApp's managing director. "We’re very proud with our involvement in helping to bring evidence to healthcare and making data useful. We wish the best of luck to all nominees on the night!"

Public Health Initiative of the Year

Working in collaboration with the National Health Intelligence Unit (NHIU), the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) HSE and the Central Statistics Office, OpenApp evolved an application to geo-reference and map the occurrence of COVID-19 cases on a national basis in close to real time. The displays include the approximate location of reported cases (within the last 24 hours, previous 2 weeks and earlier) to enable public health services to easily identify local disease clusters, and to filter cases by age group and transmission type. In addition, recent rates of COVID-19 occurrence and the change in rates over the preceding two weeks by local health service catchment areas can be viewed. Role based access restricted to staff working in all Public Health Departments was enabled.

OpenApp would like to wish the best of luck to all nominees on the night!

Just over a week to go until the Irish Healthcare Awards @HealthAwardsIrl OpenApps' projects in collaboration with the HSE are in the running for "Best Use of Information Technology" & "Public Health Initiative of the Year" 🤞https://www.openapp.ie/openapp-projects-in-collaboration-with-the-hse-shortlisted-for-irish-health-awards-2022/ #IMTIHA22

Very interesting comments by the FDA RWE panel today at #NORDSummit regarding the pros and cons of using #registry data vs. other sources of data for RWE studies. Registry data can be much higher in quality and accuracy but, at times, less efficient.

Thank you to all of our speakers, attendees, and staff for a great first day of the #NORDSummit! We look forward to learning, networking, and discussing important #RareDisease topics together again tomorrow.

"Partnerships with patients and patient advocacy groups increase #DrugDevelopment success."
