ADI’S LMSU! APP SHORTLISTED FOR HSJ ‘PATIENT DIGITAL PARTICIPATION’ AWARD
ADI is delighted to announce that the application submitted for LMSU! (Let Me Show You!) has been shortlisted for an HSJ award in the Patient Digital Participation category.
Digital health design specialists mHabitat, Leeds and York Partnership Foundation Trust and Leeds Community Healthcare who developed the LMSU! app in partnership with ADI, applied for the award for improving transitions for young people with complex needs through technology.
LMSU! is a person centred online tool that empowers the young person, by putting them in control of their health, care team and their daily life, by storing and sharing media, connecting them to their support network and letting them easily manage their goals.
ADI secured phase 1 and phase 2 funding from the Small Business Research Initiative for Healthcare for the app. As part of the application’s development, a series of workshops were held with young people, carers, family members, personal assistants and a range of clinical, education and social care professionals. The team are currently about to roll out beta testing which is usually the last stage of testing.
The prestigious annual HSJ Awards are one of the largest celebrations of healthcare excellence in the world, recognising and advocating the finest achievements and innovations in the NHS.
The shortlisted organisations will take part in presentations and interviews to a panel of judges comprising senior and influential individuals from the sector. This year, the shortlisting process will include an additional stage of assessments and balances, and all 1,500 entrants will receive written feedback on their award applications.
A total of 26 winners will be announced at the awards ceremony which will take place at the Intercontinental London hotel on 21 November.
ADI wish the mHabitat, Leeds and York Partnership Foundation Trust and Leeds Community Healthcare team the best of luck!
