NB: Private organisations are only eligible to enter the Industry Collaboration Award.

Data Driven Innovation Award

Data driven innovation, such as AI and automation, has the potential to transform health and social care. It can help public health practitioners deliver preventative medicine, improve treatment and save lives by leveraging the power of data to unlock new insights. This award will recognise projects that have taken advantage of data to improve the delivery of health and social care services.

Technology Enabled Independent Living Award

Supporting independent living and self-managed care is a key component of Scotland's Digital Health and Care Strategy. Digital technology can play a huge role in empowering individuals to manage their own care journey. This award celebrates the individuals and organisations from across health, social care, housing and the third sector, who are embracing technology to support people to live independently.

Industry Collaboration Award

Partnership working between innovative private sector vendors and the public sector is vital to achieving wide scale transformation and social care services. Developing a partnership that delivers positive outcomes for the public isn't always straightforward. This award will recognise a private sector supplier that has demonstrated effective collaboration with a public or third sector client to deliver a successful digital transformation project.

Digital Health and Care Team Award

True transformation is rarely delivered by one individual - indeed, it benefits from a range of perspectives and skills. This award recognises teams across Scotland's health and social care sector who have developed their skills and internal culture to deliver transformative digital projects that have improved the delivery of services.

Digital Inclusion Award

Despite our increased reliance on technology over the past three years, there are still many people in Scotland who are digitally excluded. This award will celebrate an individual or organisation that has used digital technology to tackle digital exclusion and reduce inequalities within health and/or social care.

Digital Service Transformation Award

Successful digital transformation in health and social care has the potential to improve the way in which services are delivered to ensure personalised support. This award will celebrate an individual or organisation that has developed and deployed an innovative digital approach, allowing for the effective delivery of health, social care or housing support.

Digital Leader Award

Our Digital Leader Award recognises an individual that has played a key role in creating the environment and culture that has enabled a successful, large scale digital transformation project within health and social care.
