The winners of the overall award at the E-Health Insider Awards 2010 in association with BT will be presenting at eHealth Insider Live 2010.

A team from the Scottish Ambulance Service will be taking part in the Best Practice Showcase sponsored by Carefx at EHI Live 2010, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham from 8-9 November.

They will explain how the service developed mobile technology for its fleet of more than 600 vehicles that enables emergency crews to create an electronic record for patients and transmit it to receiving clinicians.

The project scooped the ‘best use of mobile healthcare’ award before going on to scoop the overall award earlier this month.

The Scottish Ambulance Service will be one of three winners of this year’s awards to take part in the Best Practice Showcase, which is part of the exhibition at EHI Live and therefore free to everybody attending.

The other winners presenting will be University Hospital Aintree NHS Foundation Trust, which won the ‘best use of IT in patient and citizen involvement in healthcare’ category for a Patient Concerns Inventory that uses touch-screen technology to capture patient issues ahead of a clinical consultation.

And Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, which won the ‘excellence in healthcare information management’ category for Nursing Metrics, which captures real-time information about the quality of nursing on the wards.

Alongside them in the showcase will be six other trusts anxious to show off the good, practical work that they are doing with IT to improve efficiency and patient care.

EHI director Linda Davidson said: “We introduced the Best Practice Showcase to give people the chance to hear about some of the good work that is being done with IT around the NHS.

“The entries for this year’s showcase showed there is a real focus on ‘doing more with less’ as the NHS heads for challenging financial times.

"We hope that people will enjoy meeting our winners, but also that they will pick up some practical ideas that they can take back to their own organisations."
