OpenApp are delighted to be short-listed for the prestigious Healthcare Innovation Award at the recent IMSTA Med Tech Awards.
The Healthcare Innovation Award aimed to showcase some of the most novel and effective healthcare innovations being researched and tested by healthcare professionals throughout the health service.
A requirement of the award was that all innovations must address a need, or demand, in relation to patient care or health service delivery.
OpenApp was nominated and short-listed for our involvement with the European Cystic Fibrosis Association patient registry, ECFSTracker aswell as national cystic fibrosis registries. ECFSTracker is the dedicated data-collection software of the European Cystic Fibrosis Society. It currently has data on over 40, 100 patients across 28 countries. The purpose is to measure, survey and compare aspects of cystic fibrosis and its treatment in the participating countries, thereby encouraging new standards of dealing with the disease, to provide data for epidemiological research and to identify special patient groups suitable for multi-centre trials. The information will facilitate long-term planning of health expenditure allocations and developing pan European support systems.
