Cloud2 awarded place in HSJ Patient Safety awards finals

Cloud2 are experts in intranet systems and business intelligence, and a major supplier of innovative software solutions for the healthcare sector. Their revolutionary patient referral system, Kinesis, has landed them a place in the 2017 HSJ Patient Safety Awards, a prestigious ceremony at the annual Patient Safety Congress. The awards celebrate the best innovations that have improved patient safety across the NHS in the UK.

Landing a spot in the ‘Information Technology to Improve Patient Safety’ category, Cloud2 join a national roster of talent with an interest in safety, quality and clinical excellence in healthcare.

Patient Safety Congress is the only event to bring together international best practice, innovations from the frontline, award winners, guidance from national leaders and exhibitors all with a focus on patient safety and quality improvement.[1]

Cloud2's Kinesis works by allowing GPs to contact hospital specialists when their course of clinical action is unclear. This gives them to access expert advice rapidly, allowing more patients to be quickly and successfully treated in the community by their GPs.

This innovative use of intranet systems has saved primary care millions of pounds in avoided referral costs by reducing unnecessary referrals to hospitals, but more importantly reducing the time to treatment for thousands of patients.

The finalists will now complete presentations and interviews to a judging panel made up of senior and influential figures from the health sector before the winners are announced on 4th July. We wish the best of luck to Cloud2!
