PPM+ shortlisted for four prestigious national awards

Hot on the heels of winning a Public Sector Paperless Award for their collaborative work, Aire Logic and Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust are celebrating more awards success, having been shortlisted for four more awards in the space of a week!

The UK IT Industry Awards, sponsored by Computing Magazine and the British Computer Society (BCS), is a platform for the entire IT sector to recognise best practice, innovation and excellence. Aire Logic and LTHT are delighted that their eForm-based EHR platform, PPM+, has been shortlisted for the Best Not for Profit IT Project of the Year award.

Paul Fletcher, Group CEO, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, says: “Congratulations to Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust for being shortlisted, they clearly demonstrate the highest levels of excellence and innovation across today’s IT sector. These awards showcase some of the brightest and best in our industry, and it is a significant achievement to be shortlisted.”

The Technology Product Awards, held by IT publication, Computing, is another national IT award celebrating technological achievements throughout both the public and private sectors. Following the first phase of judging, PPM+ has been shortlisted for the Technology Project of the Year category.

The prestigious Health Service Journal (HSJ) awards recognise excellence across the whole health industry, so with over 1,500 entries this year, we were immensely proud to hear that the PPM+ project had been shortlisted for not one, but two categories –  Enhancing Care by Sharing Data and Information and Using Technology to Improve Efficiency.

PPM+ is an innovative EHR solution, specifically designed using Aire Logic’s digital forms-based technology to enable massive scale roll-out and expansion with relatively small effort and cost. The resulting model is innovative, efficient and completely transferable.

PPM+ has become mission critical to the operation of LTHT and wider region. It now supports around 500,000 paperless record submissions every month (with this figure rapidly increasing) and has more than 18,000 users. In July of this year, the system supported 69,832,798 interventions across Leeds and at peak times, an eForm was completed every 2.6 seconds.
