Synopsis is delighted to announce its nominations at the British Data Awards 2021. Synopsis has been named as a finalist in two categories at the British Data Awards 2021 – Healthcare Organisation of the Year and Technology Company of the Year.

Intouch with Health, also part of VitalHub, has been named alongside Intouch with Health in the Healthcare Organisation of the Year and Technology Company of the Year categories at the British Data Awards 2021.

The British Data Awards is an annual campaign that aims to uncover data success stories. Organisations taking part this year include FTSE 100 giants, tech unicorns, public sector bodies, newly launched not-for-profit organisations and everything in between.

Celebrating the most passionate data-led organisations

The British Data Awards was launched to help discover and celebrate the most passionate data-led organisations, no matter their size. Some organisations named as Finalists have the potential to change the world, while others are having a much more local, but nonetheless important impact. And with some 149 entries received, competition to be named a 2021 Finalist proved to be particularly tough.

Jason Johnson, Co-Founder of Predatech and British Data Awards judge said: “We set-off on a quest to find our Finalists back in February, and it’s been quite a journey! Judging the entries has been a challenge due to the number of high quality entries, but it’s also been a great privilege. It’s reminded us of the sheer talent and ingenuity that makes the UK such a global powerhouse for all things data. All our Finalists should be very proud.”

The 2021 judges include: Neil Carden, COO of Forth Point, Jason Johnson, Co-Founder of Predatech, Mahana Mansfield, Data Science Director at Deliveroo, Tej Parikh, Chief Economist at the Institute of Directors, Harriet Rees, Head of Data Science at Starling Bank and Dr Jo Watts, CEO & Founder of Effini.

The winners of the British Data Awards 2021 will be announced on Tuesday 4th May.

More on Synopsis

Surgery and anaesthesia are the hospital’s engine room, where many costs are focused and where most revenue is generated (typically 70%). The pre-operative process is the fuel for that engine. Synopsis ensures this process is efficient, supporting hospitals to increase patient throughput and theatre utilisation whilst reducing cancellation rates and risk.

The award-winning Synopsis Platform enables hospitals to manage the entire pre-operative assessment digitally, removing paper trail, increasing data security, and delivering significant organisational benefits.

Synopsis has been used within the NHS to complete over 120,000 patient pre-operative assessments, contributing to an average saving of £1.4m per Trust. Savings are generated from the reduction of last-minute cancellations of surgery by an average of 20% and further administration time reductions, releasing nursing time back to the departments and increasing patient satisfaction across the surgical pathway.
