Yet another cause for celebration In October after hearing that Priority Digital Health scooped two awards at the prestigious Health Tech Digital Awards 2020. It won the ‘Best COVID-19 Solution for Community Care’ award for the ‘Covid-19 Welfare Platform’, which was mobilised in just seven days during the height of the pandemic.

Developed in partnership with Provide CIC, the platform enables the most vulnerable across Essex to register a request for support and allows volunteers to register their offer of help. Health and social care professionals can, in real-time, match volunteers to requests for support via the platform.
The platform has since been enhanced to support all residents with the practical, emotional, healthy lifestyle and social care support they need.
We were also crowned winner in the ‘Best Solution to manage Chronic Disease’ category for their ground-breaking Diabetes Education Booking Platform, which has empowered people with diabetes living in South London to self-book their education courses.
The fully interoperable diabetes platform integrates with all GP practices, allows course providers to create and edit their courses and empowers patient choice by course style, time, and location.
Within a three-year period over 40,000 people are expected to benefit from the ability to access a wider range of courses through the innovative platform, either online or in any part of south London.
“Like many organisations, 2020 has been an extraordinary year for Priority Digital Health. With March came the onset of Covid-19, which presented a very real challenge for us – to quickly adapt and scale up the Priority platform to support communities in a time of need.
"Meanwhile our team has also been busy helping public sector organisations take their health and wellbeing services online – diabetes education, lifestyle services and social prescribing, for example – to reflect the nature of our increasingly socially distanced world.
"We are so proud to receive recognition for our team’s hard work and dedication through the pandemic by winning not just one, but two industry-leading accolades at this year’s Health Tech Digital Awards.
2020 has been a true rollercoaster and we look forward to seeing what the future will bring for Priority Digital Health.” -- John Dibb, Joint Chief Executive at Priority Digital Health
This month Priority Digital Health became a listed supplier for the G-Cloud 12 framework, a coveted procurement catalogue managed by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).
Earlier this year the firm became a partner for the esteemed Medical Interoperability Gateway, enabling the organisation to access and share all registered patient records in the UK, alongside achieving both ISO 27001 accreditation and NHS DCB 0129 compliance with ETHOS Consulting.
At Priority Digital Health we build online services which empower better self-management of patients’ health and wellbeing, and which reduce the chances of long-term health problems.
We care about driving improved system efficiency and cost savings for the NHS, public health and workplaces whilst keeping patient experience at the forefront of our work.
