PSIAMS Systems shortlisted for Social Enterprise Award at the Celebration of Innovation Event and Awards 2017

PSIAMS, working in partnership with Dudley CVS, has been shortlisted for a prestigious award celebrating the best of innovation in healthcare around the region.

PSIAMS has been given the nod in the Social Enterprise category of the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN)’s second annual Celebration of Innovation Awards.

More than 250 people from across the West Midlands’ NHS, industry, academia, third sector and patient population will gather at the Hilton Metropole at Birmingham’s NEC on 20 July.

The awards were established to recognise and celebrate the work of individuals and organisations in developing better healthcare and increasing wealth for local people, and the ceremony will provide an opportunity to celebrate achievements from across the West Midlands.

More than 100 entries were submitted across the 12 categories, which will now be assessed by a panel of experts to choose the eventual winner.

PSIAMS Systems is a social enterprise that has enabled a collaborative approach to health care across the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, allowing the sector to scale and present new solutions to divert and reduce the pressure on statutory health services.

Dr Christopher Parker, Managing Director of the WMAHSN, said: “We are delighted that PSIAMS has been shortlisted for an award in the Social Enterprise category.

More than 100 entries were submitted and while it was a very tough decision to shortlist entries in the light of such a strong field, the other judges and I were in agreement that PSIAMS entry showed an astonishing breadth of scope and an approach that is truly innovative, transforming patient care, providing solutions to significant challenges and breaking down barriers across our region.”

PSIAMS was first developed to support the work of Dudley CCG’s (Clinical Commissioning Groups) collaborative work with the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector on demonstrating their impact.

Mark Ellerby, Director of PSIAMS said: “Our work is not just about putting information into a system. We connect solutions together; marketing, peer-to-peer support, referrals to other services.

The outcome is that it huge amounts of time is saved and that allows valuable resources to be redirected to frontline services. PSIAMS can be delivered at a single or multi-organisational level.

In Dudley, our team has created a single, collaborative platform for over 30 organisations and over 200 users to operate from. Perhaps our greatest impact has been the way organisations now work and think about data and outcomes; whether that’s moving from paper to digital or office to mobile, our clients are more data and outcomes focused. This approach has also given the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector a means to contribute to the NHS’s Local Digital Road Map by ensuring data is now digital.

Since our formation as a company less than 18 months ago, we now work with around 45 health and wellbeing organisations across the West Midlands and beyond. Our customers include Dudley CVS, Integrated Plus, Changes UK, BID Services, Beacon Centre, Langstone Society, Lunch on the Run, Dudley Mind and Age UK Dudley. We have also created 6 jobs.”
