The 2007 Healthcare Business Award for Innovation has gone to Brandon Medical. The Award was presented during the Medilink Innovation Day at the Royal Armouries in Leeds. Of the 8 Category Award winners, Brandon Medical were also selected as the Overall Winner for the second year running.
The Innovation Award was given in recognition of the tremendous potential shown by Brandon’s new Integrated Medical Video system. This system could revolutionise the way hospitals record and transmit all types of procedures and have a significant impact on clinical training and development. The system itself has been developed completely around the latest IP technology, allowing video & audio feeds to be transmitted and recorded over a hospitals existing communications network. This is much more effective than existing telemedicine systems which rely on expensive and complex stand-alone wiring systems for data transmission.
The Overall Award recognizes that across all 8 Category Winners at the Healthcare Business Awards Brandon Medical’s Integrated Medical Video project was the best.
This is the second year of success for Brandon Medical who also won the Overall Award in 2006 and received the National Medilink Award presented at the NEC during the MEDTEC Exhibtion.
Mr Graeme Hall, Managing Director of Brandon Medical (pictured), was present at the ceremony to receive the awards commenting that “it’s always an honour to receive recognition for innovation. Brandon Medical is rapidly becoming a world leader in both medical communications and medical lighting. It’s a great pleasure to see our investments in design and technology paying off in the form of brilliant new products.”
