The annual Florence Nightingale Award for Excellence in Healthcare Data Analytics 2021 is now open for entries.
Running for the second year in a row, the award recognises practitioners in applied health care data analytics who have gone the extra mile in delivering innovative improvements for the health care system.
In 2020, the award went to:
- NHS Blood and Transplant, for developing an analytics model that equitably allocates kidneys
- and Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust and The Alan Turing Institute, for applying artificial intelligence analytics to develop a tool to assist nurses during triaging in an emergency department.
Adam Steventon, Director of Data Analytics, said: ‘The pandemic continues to show us the importance of innovation in the use of analytics and data-driven technology, and the critical role it is playing in supporting the response to COVID-19 and the recovery of the NHS and social care moving forward. We look forward to seeing how organisations and individuals are promoting better use of data to improve health and social care services across the country.’
The Florence Nightingale Award for Excellence in Healthcare Data Analytics is awarded jointly by the Health Foundation and the Royal Statistical Society.
