vCreate Covid-19 Team Win Innovation Award
The Scottish Health Innovation Award 2020 aims to recognise individuals/teams who develop innovative ways to improve health and social care in Scotland.
Winners are celebrated for their forward-thinking and creative approaches. The NHS Lothian vCreate Covid-19 Team used the vCreate online application within critical care so that staff could send pre-recorded video clips and photos of patients to their family members, as way for people to stay in touch and feel connected. Recognition of their compassion and creativity is richly deserved.
This award is for an individual, a group or a team developing innovative ways to improve health and social care in Scotland. Innovation has many forms and this award recognises clinical and non-clinical innovation. It includes research, use of new or emerging technologies, new ways of working, or faster, smarter access to services and treatments.
It aims to recognise forward-thinking, innovative individuals, or teams, who have taken a creative approach to improve quality, delivery, safety or productivity within health and social care. Nominations will be accepted for individuals and/or teams working in NHS, Health and Social Care Partnership or another healthcare-focused organisation based in Scotland.
