Entec Health announced as finalist for E-Health Insider 2014 Awards, July 2014

Entec Health has been selected as a finalist in the EHI 2014 Awards, Health IT Product Innovation Category. EHI received 270 entries in its call for Health IT Excellence, with some 70 shortlisted projects invited to present to the EHI Judging Panel during July 2014.

Entec Health’s submission is built around the theme of “Transforming wound assessment practice for improved patient care”. The company is working across the NHS to raise awareness and partner on adoption of Silhouette, an innovative wound assessment and information management technology, to address some of the unmet needs of current wound management practice.

Traditional methods of wound assessment are paper-based, cumbersome and unreliable. The Silhouette innovation supports health professionals to transform wound assessment practice and clinical management of patients with wounds, utilising digital imaging, 3D wound measurement, quantitative wound healing progress data and electronic data capture at the point of care.

The EHI 2014 Awards submission presented by Entec Health incorporated qualitative evidence and user experience from the Kings College Diabetic Foot Clinic, where the clinical team are pioneering the use of Silhouette for assessing diabetic foot ulceration, initially in their clinical research programme and clinical development plans. Following successful clinical validation of Silhouette, the Kings Diabetic Foot Clinic team and nursing colleagues are preparing to expand the use of Silhouette into clinical practice during 2014.

“The EHI 2014 Awards are a great platform to acknowledge the importance and value of Health IT excellence and innovation. We are delighted to be selected as a finalist and welcome the recognition given to the successful collaboration between Kings College Hospital health professionals and industry partners Entec Health and ARANZ Medical. We represent a great example of how collaborative success is possible through having a common goal of moving clinical practice forward for optimal patient care. “ commented Achala Patel, Managing Director, Entec Health

The EHI 2014 Awards winners will be announced at the EHI Awards Ceremony in London in October 2014.
