Medica has won two APM (Association of Project Management) awards for 'Best Technology Project of the Year' and 'Overall Project of the Year'.

Medica’s augmented intelligence project to introduce AI into the Acute Workflow, was shortlisted in the APM project management awards 2021. The awards have global reach and are open to projects from all countries and organisations. They are widely regarded as the most prestigious and sought after recognition for excellence within the project management profession.

Medica introduced the qER AI tool from into their acute teleradiology workflow supporting out of hours reporting to a large number of NHS Trusts. The tool recognises intracranial haemorrhage and prioritises the scan for reporting. Every second saved can improve patient outcome. The project was recognised as the winner in the technology category and its importance to patient care led the judges to award it overall project of the year. A great testament to the dedication of the Medica team and the project management style

The technology project of the year award is given to the applicant whose project demonstrates the most effective use of project management and the greatest benefits and outcomes to end users in technology and communication projects.   

4 members of the Medica team attended the ceremony at the Old Billingsgate in London on 15th November 2021 and were delighted to accept the award for ‘Best Technology Project of the Year’, with the added surprise of then being awarded ‘Overall Project of the Year’ too.

CEO Stuart Quin commented on the news: “Congratulations to all the team involved in the successful deployment of our first Augmented Intelligence solution including our partners,, as well as the Medica “NightHawk” radiologists for all of their efforts to integrate the solution into ‘live’ reporting. We have seen the benefits that AI can bring for patients by assisting in the identification of hard to detect haemorrhages in the brain and this prestigious award recognises all of the hours the team put in to make it happen.”
