Singapore: At the 20th year celebration of iAwards, the group honoured the ‘best of the best' from companies at the cutting edge of technology innovation through to leading professionals across the industry. The group aims to recognize the achievements of home-grown Australian innovators.
At the awards, Fujifilm Australia received the honour for iCVIS in the Health category, which recognizes an outstanding ICT product developed by an Australian organization.
FUJIFILM Australia General Manager, Mr Eric Lebail said at the event, "Fujifilm Australia identified a need in the cardiovascular market to improve cardiology care and analysis using smart clinical informatics software, with the aim of improving workflows, clinician efficiency and patient safety and reducing workplace stress for Clinicians. We couldn't be more proud in winning the National iAward for the iCVIS platform - a testimony to the power of working with smart Australian vendors, such as Alcidion, and leveraging their world class technology."
The award covers the whole gamut of Healthcare technologies that support superior patient outcomes across the broad spectrum of services and activities delivered by health-care professionals.
"As Australian innovators, we couldn't be more pleased to be part of this achievement. iCVIS has enjoyed great success and growth since our launch early this year, and this award just tops that all off. iCVIS provided Alcidion with an exciting opportunity to be able to partner with FUJIFILM on this initiative, and it's pleasing to have another opportunity to work with Western Health as the luminary site to prove this innovation," commented Mr Ray Blight, CEO of Alcidion.
FUJIFILM Australia has a strategic partnership with Alcidion and over the past eighteen months have developed the leading edge intelligent Cardiovascular Information System (iCVIS) to deliver advanced workflow optimization, patient safety improvements and clinical informatics efficiency gains to cardiovascular clinicians.
