The eRedbook has won the Connected Society award at BT Connected Cities, a BT and Cabinet Office competition aimed at showcasing innovative SMEs that are shaping the cities of the future.
The Connected Society prize is for the SME whose idea demonstrates how ICT can help society to operate more sustainably.
The eRedbook is the digital version of the paper-based Personal Child Health Record (PCHR, colloquially known as Red book): a parent-held record used to manage a child’s health and development. The digital record provides the same information about a child’s health, immunisations, growth and development, as well as personalised guidance for new parents, including links to videos and information from NHS.uk and local sources – but in a more secure and personalised digital format that is always available on a smart device.
The eRedbook is also designed to be used by healthcare professionals, such as Health Visitors and GPs across multiple healthcare settings and borders, supporting the seamless coordination of care through the whole healthcare system.
The BT Connected Cities competition is sponsored by BT, Milton Keynes and TechHub. The award prize is £7,500 and includes support and mentoring for the winners. The competition promotes SMEs that will make a big difference to the cities of the future through imaginative use of digital products and services.
