Brain in Hand, based at the University of Exeter Innovation Centre, won Best Health Technology at the national Building Better Healthcare Awards in London yesterday (Nov 6), in front of an audience of more than 500 representatives from the healthcare industry. The award was presented by former Cabinet Minister Michael Portillo.
ImageRoy Lilley, chairman of the judges and founder member of the NHS Trust Federation, said: “models of healthcare delivery are changing rapidly, placing the individual at the centre of the care programme and connecting patients and caregivers to the medical community in the cloud. Brain in Hand is an exemplary example of this digital future.”

Andrew Stamp, CEO at Brain in Hand, said: “We’re delighted. To be recognised by the healthcare industry for Best Technology is a fantastic stamp of approval. The team we’ve got at Brain in Hand is brilliant – passionate, committed and relentlessly focused on doing what’s best for the end user.

“Organisations are really starting to see the benefits of Brain in Hand, not only for the people they care for, but in helping them improve their services. Combining smart technology with a back up mentor network, Brain in Hand is finally putting people in control of how they want to be supported in their lives.”

Rapid growth in health and lifestyle mobile smartphone technology has seen the market rocket from a global turnover of $100m in 2010 to $4billion in 2013. The market is estimated to reach $26 billion by 2016.
