A COVID-secure telehealth service which ensures people take their medicines correctly has been shortlisted for a second prestigious national award.
Of those using PAMAN, 97% now take their medicines correctly, compared to the national average of 55% – improving safety, health outcomes and wellbeing.
The internet-based service also generates significant savings for health and care services. If implemented across England it could save tax payers more than £100m every year.
This latest accolade sees PAMAN shortlisted in the Go:Tech Awards’ ‘Most Innovative Use of Software or Cloud Technology’ category, run by Business Leader Magazine.
It is one of six from 200 applicants nationwide to be chosen as a finalist.
Norman Niven, a community pharmacist and founder of the Medication Support Company, said:
“We are absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for two awards in as many months. I am so proud of the team for creating and developing such an innovative and workable solution to ensure people take their medicines safely.
“PAMAN has been shown to help keep people well. Just as important, people who use PAMAN say the service gives them independence and makes them feel safer. It can make a real difference to their lives.”
Awards founder Andrew Scott said: :
“It’s reassuring to see the quality of companies that are shortlisted, as they can give us all hope for the future that the UK is leading globally in this space.
“It’s been a tough year for many but also a year of opportunity and the UK tech sector has shown itself to be a force for good. We’re proud to have provided a platform for the best of the best to showcase their success and enterprise.”
