IMS MAXIMS’ track record in partnering with the NHS to transform the way healthcare is delivered has resulted in the company being named as a leading HealthTech innovator by The Journal of mHealth.

Recognised for successfully helping drive the adoption of open source software, the technology provider was praised by judges for offering NHS trusts more flexibility and choice in implementing an electronic patient record. The ability for users from across different organisations to help develop the software code also played a part in the decision-making process.

The judging criteria analysed 10 different quantitative and qualitative evaluation metrics including disruptive impact; proof of concept; technology innovation; social value; effectiveness; execution of strategy; and, industry integration.

The Global Digital Health 100 is one of the HealthTech industries foremost technology award programmes, celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship. Over the past four years, it has become established as the international benchmark of innovation in the healthcare technology industry.

Competition for the list has been fierce, with more nominations than in any previous year and hundreds of companies analysed and assessed to determine which solutions made the final cut.

While many companies, over the past few years, have failed despite having truly innovative technologies to offer, the 2017 cohort shows that it is essential to not only demonstrate innovation in technology but also innovation in service and business model development as a requisite to succeeding as a technology company in the healthcare industry.

Matthew Driver, Managing Editor, The Journal of mHealth said:

“IMS MAXIMS solutions have been built from the ground-up in partnership with clients in the NHS. Using open source technology, the company’s software products are helping to deliver transparency, open data principles and the move towards delivering safe and integrated care to healthcare organisations across the UK.”

Responding to the news, Natalie Chishick, Policy and Communications Director, IMS MAXIMS, said:

“It’s an honour to be recognised for our work, but importantly, we are delighted that the benefits of open source have been recognised in the Global Digital Health List. I hope it helps spread the word about a different, better way of deploying technology that gives health and care providers greater ownership and control over their digital journey.”
