The global healthcare industry has never been more challenging, with issues around funding causing health providers around the world to have to find innovative solutions for increasingly less money.

Additionally, the issue of anti-microbial resistance is causing clinical issues and despite the vast amount of research being invested in the issue healthcare providers are having to increase their vigilance to content with this global problem.

Technology is another area in the healthcare sector which is developing rapidly, with firms having to adapt around new methods of treating, diagnosing and communicating medical information. Despite all of these various challenges, the healthcare industry has continued to provide vital, lifesaving services to everyone around the world. From product development experts to physiotherapists, researchers to surgeons, and, of course, the millions of behind the scenes support service personnel, marketing specialists and corporate decision makers, the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries at all levels are littered with amazing stories and even more amazing people whose work is judged, not by the amount of money made or products sold, but by the lives changed for the better and, in many cases, saved. Singling out and recognising the millions of deserving people and firms in these industries is not an easy thing to do, however, through the 2015 Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards we are honoured to be able to champion the fantastic work of even a tiny percentage of the medical and wellness sectors worldwide.

Award for Innovation in Functional Respiratory Imaging

FLUIDDA is the world leader in the field of Functional Respiratory Imaging (FRI) research and development. Jan De Backer talks us through the firm’s innovative and extraordinary work. FLUIDDA has developed novel diagnostics for lung diseases such as Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Lung Fibrosis. The technology, called Functional Respiratory Imaging (FRI), provides and unparalleled insight into how the lungs work. We can have a detailed look at blood vessels and airways. We can even determine where inhaled drug particles end up in the lungs of individual patients. This allows us to work with pharmaceutical and biotech companies to help them to develop better drugs, faster and cheaper. At the same time we can also assist individual doctors in selecting the most appropriate treatment for individual patients, thereby avoiding the very costly trial and error approach. Personally, I believe we are on the verge of a revolution in healthcare. We see important stakeholders such as governments, patient advocacy groups and the next generation of doctors, they all converge around using new technology, new biomarkers, and new diagnostics to improve the efficiency of the system. A lot of improvements can be made in healthcare by simply implementing the technology that is already available today (eg. data centralisation, big data, home monitoring). In the last 12 months it has become clear that the healthcare system needs to change to remain sustainable in times of austerity and an ageing population. This (r)evolution will create ample opportunity for high tech companies like FLUIDDA to introduce new methods to make things better and to improve the lives of patients worldwide.

Clinical Trials Company of the Year – Sweden

Ladulaas Clinical Trials perform clinical trials on behalf of the researching pharmaceutical industry. We speak to Katarina Berndtsson Blom who talks us through the firm’s vital work.

Ladulaas Clinical Trials are a clinical trial firm, sometimes working with a CRO company as a go between. Our firm is dedicated to our clients. Every client, small or big, is important to us and we strive to make them feel this. We believe in long lasting relations. We have low staff turnover and thus high continuity. Working in a fast paced industry such as ours means we have to be fast adapters, and we believe that nothing is impossible. But it is important, of course, for us to choose the right trials which makes a big difference to ensuring that we stay at the top of our game. Recent trends in our industry which we have had to adapt to include an explosion in electronic systems used to capture patient data. Electronic logpads, sitepads and other electronic devices connected with portals with usernames and passwords that we have to change every third month. Working with this new technology has been very time consuming for our firm but we feel we have succeeded. Since we work exclusively with clinical trials, we have no other activities competing for our attention, and are therefore able to focus on safety, which is a key component of our work. Looking to the future, we have many challenges but I’m sure that we can hold our position at the top because there’s no doubt among our clients and study participants of where our primary focus is – Clinical Trials.

Best for Unique Hand Crafted Eyewear 2015

Airborn Eyewear creates innovative and unique sunglasses from used, historic airplane material. Glasses are known to be made out of different materials. Widely used are the organic plastic cotton-acetate, various nickel-copper alloys, stainless steel, titanium materials, the most common metals, as well as traditional natural materials such as buffalo horn and wood. All these materials have been tested for decades, are almost everywhere available - and new. The idea of the AIRBORN eyewear collection is based on a material, which already has its own story: In its first life the material was part of an aircraft for many years, has flown for a long time and often more than hundreds or thousands, even millions of miles and sometimes has been in all parts of the world. The aluminium plates which the designs are created from are carefully selected, their origin and history are documented in the appropriate certificates (printed on really old paper) that are attached to every piece. The owner of such glasses for example, should know that the little treasure that he wears on his nose, in his first life was the left flap or a piece of the fairing of a Douglas DC3, flown for American Airlines between 1949 and 1968 an estimated distance of 20 million miles. The firm came about as there is a growing desire recently for real and true values, for products that have a real, believable narrative memory and history. A good example is the rebirth of the mechanical watch: A digital clock, that is so perfect that it is wrong by only a few seconds per year, and still only costs a few dollars and is made a hundred thousand times, but is just only a dull disposable product. On the other side the watch, which is composed of many gears, screws, bearings and pointers, designed and built by experts carefully by hand: it has a ticking heart, you have to maintain it and treat it with care. In the field of photography it is happening just like this: After almost every mobile phone today has a camera with witch any time anything and everything (and especially the banal) can be photographed, traditional manufacturers, such as Leica, are currently relive a revival: with mechanical and digital cameras in classic design, for a sum of money where one could buy a decent used car, consumers are demanding back to the real values of photography: they don’t take any more photos – they take pictures again.

In the eyewear business a growing number of small eyewear designer labels today serve such clients who do not seek for a name, but for ideas. Prices play a minor role; most customers come for unique, distinctive - and sometimes also to be asked for their glasses and say something special about them to. These “independent labels” have become the highlight of every trade show and the creative engine of progress in the eyewear industry. The procurement of this raw material is not without problems, because aircraft material is not lying around everywhere, it is part of closed material cycles. But the very rarity makes it to a piece of the specialty. Part of the material procurement is currently underway on companies that recycle the aircraft, other sources are online auction houses, museum shops and airplane graveyards in the U.S., Europe and the former Soviet Union. It would be easy to copy the Designs of a few established, successful and easy to sell frame-models – but also pointless: the material and the story to be told rather require a unique design language. That includes elements of classic retro glasses, the second forms, which are also present in the aircraft, the third one (large-) dimensionality, which makes the material really come into their own: AIRBORN glasses do not have the job to be as invisible as possible. The currently available designs are based on the look of bright polished plane bodies and on the look and haptics of old silver cutlery.

Award for Innovation in Nutraceutical Products & Best for Complementary Health Care Solutions - Australia

Cell-Logic is dedicated to upholding the principle that the ideal foundation for health care occurs when science supports nature. Christine Houghton talks us through the firm’s work in this area and the strategies that have bought them the success of winning this prestigious award. Cell-Logic has developed EnduraCell®, a 100% enzyme-active whole broccoli sprout powder which yields bioactive, sulforaphane on ingestion. EnduraCell® is nutrigenomically-active, enhancing the expression of a large number of genes associated with the ways human cells defend themselves. The protective compounds produced by sulforaphane include the cell’s own powerful antioxidant and detoxification enzymes, glutathione and heavy-metal chelators. These essential functions occur simultaneously because sulforaphane is the most potent naturally-occurring compound that activates a gene ‘switch’ within human cells. It is our goal is to bring our unique broccoli sprout ingredient to product formulators globally. Cell-Logic also manufactures a range of EnduraCell-based encapsulated supplements which we market globally to clinicians specialising in Nutritional Medicine. There are a number of challenges inherent is such an ambitious goal. The science of sulforaphane is complex and a major difficulty lies in educating consumers that a 100% whole broccoli sprout ingredient is superior to the inert extracts. A second difficulty lies in changing the mind-set of clinicians and consumers, accustomed to using large doses of synthetic antioxidant vitamins, erroneously thinking that this is what human cells require for their optimal function.

However our greatest challenge lies in educating both clinicians and product formulators in a new paradigm in supplementation. Sulforaphane-generating EnduraCell® is a potent ingredient with superior ability to nutrigenomically-activate cellular defences, a relatively new concept. For 6 decades, we thought that supplemental antioxidant vitamins would protect human cells; the flawed Free Radical-Antioxidant theory has now been replaced by the science of Nutrigenomics. As such, we use bioactive food-derived molecules to ‘switch on’ the protective genes enabling cells to produce their own potent antioxidants, working with Mother Nature, not against her; EnduraCell® leads the way in this new paradigm. Within our firm, our greatest achievement is that Cell-Logic invests heavily in R & D and we are gratified by the knowledge that our flagship ingredient, EnduraCell® as well as finished encapsulated products have significant clinical potential.

We felt that the healthcare industry was motivated to develop patient-centred research but lacked the tools and guidance. That’s why we set out to develop Lifelines™ - as a specific methodology for really in-depth research into how patients lived with health conditions, what mattered to them, how they defined successful outcomes and where health providers should focus their efforts. Amongst our pharmaceutical clients, we’ve developed a very strong working relationship with Pfizer in the UK. Since 2010, we’ve worked with them, deploying Lifelines™ projects into patient experience across a wide range of health conditions, including cancer, arthritis, haemophilia and dementia. In so doing, our work has reached out and engaged many other stakeholders, including patient groups, charities, hospices and of course the NHS itself. Strong relationships such as this and others are built around the fact that we see our relationship with clients as a partnership. Clients come to us for our expertise not just in research design and interpretation, but in our professionalism too. Whether we are working with patients, or in a hospital environment, or developing software with providers, we are ambassadors for the client, representing their efforts to develop valuable research. So, we set our standards very high, in terms of the teams that we build, how we train and learn from every project, and a willingness to be open, honest and challenging, for the good of the project. Working in the pharmaceutical industry requires agencies to have high standards in terms of data compliance, ethics and other legal obligations. We take quality management just as seriously. There are a number of competitors in our industry and so we have to work hard to differentiate ourselves. Unlike most agencies working in healthcare, we work across other industry sectors too – in retail, leisure, transport and beyond. We find that this gives us an

edge – we see trends spilling over from one sector to another, perhaps commonplace in one industry but barely begun in another. Consumers see this too, and this helps us tune in our insights not just to people as patients, but in the context of their overall lives – as parents, shoppers, students, holidaymakers. And through the increasing use of digital channels and social media, we are able to interlink trends and ideas across these different roles and environments. Ultimately our firm is unique because we’ve brought our experience from working in highly customer-centric industries like retail and leisure and specifically adapted it for healthcare. For example our capabilities in customer journey mapping have enabled us to develop highly detailed patient journeys, which have huge potential to make traditional patient pathways so much more patient-centric. Our Lifelines™ solution is a great example of this – we have not seen any of our competitors be able to uncover, interpret and visualise patient experience insight in such a flexible and intuitive way. Lifelines™ findings are easy to communicate – to healthcare professionals and pharma clients alike. Most of all, we are able to bring to life the experiences of patients in a format that encourages action. The future holds a number of exciting opportunities for our firm. Customer Faithful has built its reputation on being experts researching customer and patient experience. Yet, we’re conscious that the ultimate success of the research is in making change happen by delivering improvements ‘on the ground’. So we are beginning to develop research techniques for aligning employee experience too – identifying barriers, weakness and opportunities within healthcare providers to enable the service that patients value most to be delivered reliably and compassionately. We expect to conduct a lot more work in this area in the future.

Allergy Clinic of the Year 2015 - Devon & Recognised Leader in Intolerances & Digestive Disorders - UK

The Devon Allergy Clinic The Devon Allergy Clinic provides a unique, client centred approach to allergy treatment. Marlene Hochstrasser, Clinical Director, talks us through her unique approach to her work and how this has contributed to her clinic winning these two prestigious awards. Here at the Devon Allergy Clinic we aim to provide dedicated clinical advice to all patients with allergies and intolerances, ensuring our service is always tailored to suit their individual needs. Most patients who come to me with digestive disorders believe that it is something that they have eaten. In most cases it is not an allergy but another intolerance, which once diagnosed can certainly improve their quality of life. Therefore I have made it my philosophy in business to inform and educate my clients regarding the difference between allergies, hypersensitivity and various other digestive disorders so they can be aware of what treatments to seek in future and how they can avoid the reoccurrence of their symptoms. Guidelines on the treatment allergies and other food intolerances are constantly changing, therefore it is imperative that I maintain my continuous professional development. In order to achieve this and ensure my clients receive the highest possible standard of care, I always endeavour to work within standards of conduct and advocate patients seeing GP or other healthcare professional wherever I feel it is required. However, many of my patients have already been seen by their GPs and are unsatisfied with their treatment. Apart from allergies I also see clients with a diagnosis of IBS, as this is a very complex group of symptoms and once they have had the relevant NHS testing they are often left just managing symptoms. Now there is robust evidence which can be applied to improve the quality of life for suffers, which I provide to them to help them manage their symptoms. Ultimately the reason that my firm is so successful in my region is because the allergy treatment services in the UK are currently very poor. I live in Devon and yet our nearest centre of excellent for allergy is Southampton, which means that patients either have to travel far, or, if unable to do so, could potentially miss out on treatment.

This lack of support for allergy sufferers means the delivery of allergy services is a challenge, but working outside the NHS means I can apply evidence based knowledge to patients who perceive they have allergy. They often have repeatedly visited their GP and have been prescribed with relevant medication to reduce the symptoms but really the answer is to find the potential triggers which when identified and removed will stop the symptoms, which is what we at the clinic endeavour to do for every patient. Additionally, another challenge working in my industry is that the approach by GPs and other healthcare professionals, which often assess the initial individual symptoms without examining the cause. Asthma, eczema and rhinitis are all potential symptoms of allergy, but unfortunately on visiting a GP those suffering from asthma would be referred to the respiratory department whereas Eczema sufferers would be referred to dermatology and rhinitis to ENT. This means that all these symptoms would be treated separately, but from an allergic perspective they need to be treated as one. I was very honoured and pleased to have won these two awards, and it was especially gratifying to know that one of my clients feel that my testing and advice has improved their quality of life so much that they went to the trouble to nominate me for the awards. Although awards aren’t everything I feel they are important in this sector because sometimes innovation is not valued or evidence is not always applied to improve quality of life for patients. The reasons behind my success is that I don’t just look at allergy , which is very specific but also look at hypersensitivities intolerance and digestive disorders. Moving forward, I am eager to continue my practice to educate help and support my clients, as this is a valuable service and we are in a unique position to really make a difference in patient’s lives.

Speech & Language Therapist of the Year – Yorkshire

Glossa Ltd is a speech and language therapy specialist which assists both patients and their families. We speak to Lucy Lowson about the services the firm provides and their dedication to patient care.

Glossa provides a Speech and Language Therapy service to adults with communication and swallowing difficulties, which they have usually acquired through injury or illness. In addition to this we also support family members and carers providing training when needed.

We felt honoured to have been nominated for this award and I am extremely happy to have won this category.

In order to achieve this we take our work very seriously. Our mission statement is “Re-building confidence for people with communication difficulties through functional, life-relevant therapy, support and education.” We aim to abide by this at all times to ensure our patients receive the best possible support and care to help them on the road to recovery.

Best Patient Care Board - USA

Healthcare Inspirations is the only company in the United States that designs and builds whiteboards exclusively for hospitals. We speak to Don McCormick who explains how passion is what drives the firm to success. The business was established in 1984 and was built by Don from the from the ground up, him listening to his customers and creating a new type of Patient Communication Board, which is engineered for heavy use in a healthcare environment— including regular disinfecting. Don explains how inspiration struck him in 2003. “In 2003 I was in the hospital regularly with two of my family members, my mother and my aunt. As I sat in their rooms I saw that all they had was a small, old whiteboard that couldn’t really be used anymore because it had been ruined by regular cleaning. As I sat there and looked at that board I thought, ‘there has got to be a better way to communicate between the patient, their family and the staff’. This was my inspiration to invent our award winning AlumiLife™ Patient Communication Boards.

“Our AlumiLife frames snap-open to allow the board insert to be easily removed from the frame. This opens up all kinds of wonderful options for secondary languages and shared use rooms. A good example would be Labor & Delivery and Postpartum. The care a pregnant woman needs is very different than the care she will need after the baby is born. With double-sided inserts the patient can stay in the same room, but have a personalized Labor & Delivery design on the front and a Postpartum design on the back. That’s why we’re known for having ‘the whiteboard that flips!” Name: Don McCormick Company: Healthcare Inspirations Web Address: https://healthcareinspirations.com/ Address: 4225 Northgate Blvd., Suite 4 Sacramento, CA 95834-1233

Our boards are custom designed and printed so they can be personalized according to the type of care the patient requires. The design team includes an information architect, creative director, and a masters prepared RN. This intense focus on design has allowed us to develop and refine Clinical Best Practices for dozens of clinical specialties, such as Trauma Med/Surg, Neuro ICU, Labor & Delivery, etc. This gives us an enormous competitive advantage in the marketplace.” Don is keen to emphasise that his boards are designed for patient centered care, keeping everyone involved, including staff, the patient, and their families. “The board is designed to be both easy to use and easy to read, fostering communication between everyone involved in the patient’s care, including their families. The family is a huge part of the patient’s care team— which is why our boards include a section for ‘Patient and Family Concerns or Questions’. This allows the family to write notes to ask their care team the next time they are in the room.” Healthcare Inspirations has a board that flips. How does that work?

Innovative Healthcare Technology Provider- Canada

iMD Health is the preeminent digital patient engagement platform from within examination rooms across Canada. Kevin Delano provides us with an overview of the firm and the company’s position in the market. Established five years ago, iMD Health has a simple vision, to change lives, both the lives of our Users (HCP’s) and their patients. We do this through delivering a best in class medical illustration library, unbranded patient materials, branded materials, digital tool box, print and email enabled solutions. iMD Health is a complete digital solution; where we provide touch screen systems “At The Point of Care”™ or our new cloud based solution (used on any device); both platforms contain medical illustrations, treatment resource documents /videos and many digital innovative solutions: digital referral networks, patient benefit programs, enrolment services, digital diagnostic assessments, etc.). The software operates in both doctor exam rooms and pharmacy counselling rooms and we close the loop at home by sending the materials to the patient via our secure patient portal. This product is revolutionary as it is impacting the patients understanding of their condition, and empowering them to manage their own health. iMD Health provides our solution to healthcare professionals on no cost. We generate our revenues by giving brand companies (Rx, OTC, CPG) the opportunity to promote their brands At The Point of Care – when the treatment therapies are being discussed. Our client service / sales team at iMD is called Client Experience. Everything we do for our clients is focused around optimizing the whole experience when dealing with iMD. It is not just a specific group, it is a philosophy throughout the whole company. From inbound phone calls via reception, to the experience in dealing with technical issues. Of course, our sales team leads the charge, but at iMD, it is a company mantra to ‘show our clients love’ at every occasion. Working in a fast moving digital space means that we have to adapt quickly to keep up with emerging trends. In order to achieve this we are constantly watching all trends, not only in Canada, but around the globe. One thing we have learned is that technology is moving much faster than the Doctors adapting to their use. This adoption gap slows development down, which, in the case of changing Doctors behaviours, introducing new systems into their exam room, changing the way they interact with a patient which is a good thing.

Ultimately we see this adoption gap as an opportunity for iMD. We are changing the way a Doctor practices. This doesn’t happen overnight. This environment also provides higher barriers to entry from any competitors. It’s not just about the technology or the next shiny new object….it is about integrating into the workflow of a Doctor / Pharmacist– which takes careful planning and patience. This is because iMD is built for Doctors first, brand manufacturers second. We have learned, that by focusing on the way a Doctor –practices, the functionality they want, will only lead to greater adoption / use. With high use, comes more attractiveness to brands. We utilize a medical board to ensure we are building the best solutions. We utilize a sophisticated QA process to ensure development items are tested before release. We utilize industry leading security measures. We utilize global leaders to ensure our uptime is best in class. Canada, the region we primarily operate in, is known to be one of the most highly regarded healthcare systems in the world, and with that also comes countless regulations and processes. We have learned that if we can be successful in a highly regulated market like Canada, other markets will be a bit easier to implement. There is huge pressure on Doctors and Pharmacists in Canada. With regulators having significant controls over income levels for both, HCP’s are challenged to find new ways of optimizing their practices. Just working longer hours is not the solution. Working differently and optimizing systems, workflow will have a major positive impact. This is where iMD plays. Looking to the future we are keen to expand on our current success. We are about to embark on two major strategic initiatives that will take iMD into our next chapter; firstly, significant launch into chain Pharmacies across Canada. Secondly iMD Cloud, making iMD available on any device. We anticipate massive growth in both of these areas in the next 12 months and beyond. This will set us up perfectly for expansion into the USA and other geographies outside of North America.

Award for Excellence in Adult Social Care - UK

Olympus Care Services provide a range of care and support services throughout Northamptonshire for adults with disabilities and older people. We spoke to Andrew Woodall, Team Leader of their Crisis Response Team, to speak about how their holistic approach allows them to deliver the best possible service. Across the board, we deliver for people from the age of 18 and upwards and try to be as person-centred as possible with the services we deliver. We try to work very closely with the council as our owners, and also with the local NHS services. The Crisis Response Team I run, this has been a changing force since it started over four years ago. At first, we were purely about hospital admission avoidance, and we worked primarily with the ambulance services to try and reduce conveyance to Accident and Emergency departments. Over the years, we have expanded and soon started to pick up different cases, such as supporting people who were coming to the county council for social care emergencies. After that, we started to look at supporting people who were stuck in hospital and looking at the age old problem of ‘bed blocking’ (for want of a better word). We feel that we are very unique in the way that we try to deliver our services. This involves trying to promote independence, and reabling people as opposed to encouraging reliance on long term care. We believe that we give the best possible care and are genuinely contributing to the prevention of hospital admissions and the facilitation of smoother hospital discharges. We try to use our core skills to meet the needs of the people we work with, as well as our commissioners, who need us to focus on finding solutions quickly so we’re always adapting and adjusting to make sure that we deliver the best possible service we can across the county for a variety of different reasons. In order to provide the best possible service, everybody has a tailor made assessment and is looked at on an individual basis. It’s not a ‘one size fits all’ service it’s all about reaching the goals that they want to achieve to help them stay at home. We also try to provide a service that fits around their needs, as opposed to putting them into a box; Furthermore, our staff have gone through a lot of training to ensure that they can deliver the highest standards of care.

As well as the training they do at university, they look at preventative work as well as responsive work to try and to make people better and get them back on their feet. We currently have team members undergoing training to take basic health observations so we can flag an issue with a gp as it arises to prevent future hospital admissions. If we realise that somebody is not presenting as well as they probably could be, we can do a full set of observations and take all of that information back to a health professional. This allows them to respond much more quickly and avoid a situation where the patient may have fallen ill, being able to respond to people much faster, means that patients can be kept at home for longer. Whether it’s just a phone call to make sure that the situation is stabilised and being supported, or actually delivering a service, we always makes sure that we are responding immediately as opposed to waiting for a few days or weeks. This is definitely unique for the area that we work in. I also don’t believe that many others have the same training or the links we have with the health services. We work in both acute hospitals and share very good relationships and with the intermediate care team. On top of this, we also link in with our customers’ GPs. We are very proud of the services we provide and winning this award feels absolutely fantastic. It really is great for the company to be recognised for the work that they are doing to improve their services. Overall, the team’s morale really has been boosted by this achievement.

We have introduced systems to make it easier for clients to get an appointment to suit their lifestyle and work/family commitments. We have evening and weekend appointments available, people can book online, or if they phone they’re guaranteed to speak to a person who can help. This way we don’t miss anyone and everyone feels important. We take more time with our clients so they feel valued explaining their pain using interactive iPad apps so they understand what symptoms they have and why. We send them exercise programmes including videos, and give them a free app to track their progress, we also reward them for referring their friends and family and send them reminders so that they don’t forget their appointment. In order to maintain these standards we have created systems so that all Physios do the same thing, that way the experience is consistent. We also listen to the feedback from our clients and make sure we implement the changes. There are a number of exciting projects in the future. We have just opened up our second clinic at Largs Yacht Haven, North Ayrshire. We have been able to replicate the systems and procedures currently in place to make sure we started in a strong position. Winning awards like this will help to strengthen our reputation as we aim to build our customer base in a new location. We plan to develop our sport science services by offering golf profiling, injury prevention classes and body composition assessments as well as developing short videos with proactive tips covering all aspects of sports injury prevention.

“There is a lot of false information on the internet, particularly regarding healthcare, but we pride ourselves on providing reliable, scientifically backed advice, which is what makes us such a highly recommended site.”

Stella explains how winning this award recognises the firm’s dedication to its reputation for accuracy and reliability. “We are very proud to have won this accolade as it shows how much the firm has grown and how we have built up a reputation which has bought us in many new users. “All of our information is evidence based and is reviewed regularly and kept up to date with the latest UK and European guidelines. All of our articles are reviewed by our clinical team. “We are accredited by NHS England’s quality standards board Information Standard, so we review our work in accordance to their policies, which assures our users that we all of our information is of the highest possible standard.” The firm has made a lot of changes recently, moving into more international articles and changing their IP address to attract more users from other English speaking countries outside of Europe such as America, Canada and Australia. Moving forward they are keen to start making more content which is relevant to overseas users in order to engage with their expanding global user base. The firm are also looking to move expand their online patient forums, where site users can discuss issues, provide advice and also give feedback on the site. Overall, Stella was keen to emphasise that moving forward, the most important thing for the site was to ensure it maintained its reputation for reliability and trustworthiness, which was essential to ensuring user satisfaction.

Sustained Excellence in Healthcare Market Research - UK

Red Leaf is a full service healthcare market research and consulting agency with specific expertise in the pharmaceutical and consumer health sectors. We spoke to Steve Lowery, CoFounder and Director at Red Leaf Research, about how they consistently deliver for their clients. We have a senior team with over 50 years of experience between us and we have worked hard to develop a culture that is both challenging but inclusive. Our goal is always about helping our clients to take the optimal course of action for business success. In this new age of information there is so much data available and it can sometimes be overwhelming, so we place a huge amount of emphasis on the clarity of our outputs. Our goal is to make sure that the insights that we deliver to our clients are long lasting and live on in their business. Our approach towards client service goes beyond standard practice. While there are standards of responsiveness in all businesses of course, what we also do is try and get a really deep understanding of what it is clients are trying to achieve when they commission us. By getting this understanding we are in a better position to work more in partnership with them, which always leads to better results. When adapting to the changes in our industry, we have adopted both formal and informal approaches. On a formal level we have an innovation workstream that looks at what is happening across the industry to see how we can respond to any emerging changes or developments. But we also have a more informal approach to this – one of our core values as a company is inspiration and we encourage everyone to seek inspiration from beyond the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry as a matter of course. We want it to be part of our culture to be inspired by different things, and look to see where we can utilise some of the things we might learn from outside of our immediate industry. There is constant change in the NHS and constant change with our clients in terms of the shape of their organisations. In the healthcare industry, we have noticed the growing appreciation of the voice of the patient and the importance of understanding the patient journey for our clients. Several of the companies that we work with are really focusing on putting the patient at the heart of what they do and

an increasing amount of work that we are doing has some kind of patient element to it. Another trend is the growing importance of those who influence the physicians who prescribe our clients’ products – the payers and policy makers. We are seeing a real shift in emphasis away from just physicians and towards a more holistic picture involving both patients and payers as well. As a relatively small company, we can’t claim to have huge geographical reach and we don’t have big panels or proprietary services that we sell. In this sense, it can be challenging to differentiate in this space. We believe what sets us apart is our approach, which involves a relentless commitment to providing outputs which enable action for our clients, through clarity and business focus. There are a lot of agencies out there, filled with excellent researchers, but at Red Leaf we’re not just passionate about research; we’re passionate about what research can do for our clients’ business. In terms of the award, we are obviously extremely proud to be recognised for sustained excellence, particularly because this has involved being assessed by a group of highly experienced professionals. It is a great honour to win this award and I hope it is one of many more in the future for Red Leaf. Looking forward, we want to continue to grow, but at a sustainable level. We want to expand our client base and continue to be recognised for the great work we are becoming known for and enabling our clients to take action!

Recognised Leader in Flow Chemistry 2015

Syrris is a healthcare technology company who develop the most advanced technology products for R&D Chemists around the world, specialising in revolutionary flow systems. We speak to Mike Hawes about how the firm’s dedication to their client’s needs is what has led them to the success of winning this prestigious award. Syrris designs, develops and sells easy to use automated products for chemists in areas such as the pharmaceutical industry, academia, CROs, petrochemical industry etc. This versatile range of products cover a broad range of applications from synthesis, process optimisation and reaction analysis to crystallisation, calorimetry, scale-up and many more, exposing us to a wide range of markets and clients. We are a world leader in flow chemistry systems, which include our award winning Asia range; a modular, easy-to-use system which offers maximum chemical resistance with an extensive range of temperatures, pressures, and reaction times. Asia enables a wide range of chemical reactions with different level of automation. It was this product range which made flow chemistry accessible to everyone and increased the Syrris global user base. Our industry has gone through a number of changes over recent years, and as such we have had to work hard be at the forefront of the developments. Flow chemistry technology is now a much more widely adopted process than it was 10 years ago thanks to better understanding of the many benefits it offers; safer, cleaner, faster reactions and the ability to perform wider range of chemistries. This means that there are additional competitors in the industry, meaning firms such as ours have to work hard to stay ahead of the competition. We believe that it is very important to listen to flow chemistry thought leaders, customers, follow industry news, trends and competitor activities to stay ahead of the game. It is this approach that has made us the innovator of the industry, with the focus of improving productivity in R&D chemistry for 15 years. As a result of this our flow chemistry products have been mentioned in hundreds of publications and our technologies are being used in many of the industry’s leading pharma companies. This exposure gives us a great advantage of being at the forefront of flow product development. However, despite working in a product based industry, customers are at the heart of our business. From the initial contact to after sales support, Syrris aims to offer customers the highest quality service and support at all times. We believe in thorough training, robust processes, recruiting the best people in the industry and an innovative, dynamic business approach we can ensure

that we can tailor our products and services exactly to what each customer needs. Because flow chemistry systems are a long term investment, with many looking to upgrade their systems or scale up after initial purchase, our customers need assurance that they not only get the best system available, but that it is also right for their application and long term support is available. Our team consists of chemists and highly skilled engineers and our philosophy is simple - create happiness for our customers - always exceed expectations. We also think education for our clients is equally important, so we offer opportunities to take part in free workshops to learn about flow chemistry and gets hands on training of flow products. It is also vitally important to make sure our customers are fully trained to use our products and we arrange training to all new customers of our flow equipment. Also, existing customers have an option to become a member of our exclusive Customer Club, which offers many additional benefits such as exclusive offers, free hospitality at events, free prizes etc. Another key aspect of our business is safety, which links with our client centred approach as we are keen to ensure our clients receive the best possible product from us. We take great care to ensure they are reliable, highly chemically resistant and safety tested to the maximum and our customers fully trained in using our systems. Our customers have a guarantee that all of our products are fully safety tested and they comply with ISO9001 standards. In addition we are in the process of obtaining an NRTL certificate for additional assurance that our products satisfy specific safety requirements in the US. In the future we have a number of exciting projects coming up which will provide us with fresh opportunities for future growth. We are currently developing a larger scale flow chemistry system, due for release in 2016 which will include all the key benefits of our lab scale system, Asia but which will be focussed on the needs of kilo labs, pilot plants and high value manufacturing. This will increase our customer base and our product reach, providing us with further growth.
