The 10th HealthTech Innovation Awards in HealthTech Ireland’s 40th year took place recently in the Mansion House in Dublin, crowning nine winners. The following Dublin firms all won awards. “This is an event that shines a light on the wonderful organisations, both public and private, and the extraordinary people leading the way in healthcare today,” said Susan Treacy, CEO, HealthTech Ireland. “It also allowed us to refocus on the need to have the patient front and centre in healthcare, which is why it also featured a presentation from Gary Boyle a promoter with Living With Parkinson’s Disease.”
The evening celebrated some of the finest HealthTech professionals and organisations in Ireland from start-ups to SMEs to global companies as well as fantastic collaborators in the HSE and Hospitals. Importantly the evening highlighted how industry, through HealthTech Ireland and the HSE and hospitals are collaborating and partnering in many areas, to tackle complex challenges such as wait lists and digital health transformation and have positive impact for patients.
“This year’s winning initiatives & individuals exemplified the Best of the Best and what it is to bring positive impact to patients and the healthcare system, through not only state-of-the-art medical health technologies but also the transformation and culture changes required to do it,” said Treacy.
The judges were CEOs and Senior Directors from the public and private sector as well as Enterprise Ireland. A highlight for the judges and the evening was the award to an ‘Outstanding Healthcare Professional’. These were the unsung heroes who go above and beyond every day. The four finalists were exceptional individuals from TUH, TCP Homecare, Temple St. and Naas General and worked in IT, Outpatients, Innovation and Nursing.
