Calling patient-focused digital health innovators!

MSD has announced the first Europe-wide Patient Digital Health Awards (PDHA.eu), a competition intended to directly involve patients and patient advocacy associations so as to highlight their needs and diverse experiences as drivers of digital health thinking.

Modeled after the highly successful Italian edition now in its fourth year, PDHA.eu 2021 was developed in collaboration with Digital Health Academy to inspire and recognize digital healthcare innovation from a patient perspective. It applauds solutions aimed at improving care and quality of life for patients and their caregivers, particularly those developed collaboratively with patients and/or advocacy organizations.

The competition is open to individuals, patient associations, healthcare providers, scientific foundations, public or private universities and educational institutions, services companies, IT companies, and startups that are located within any of the EU Member States, EFTA Members, the Balkans, and the UK.

Applications must be submitted by 25 July 2021, 12:00 am CET.

The award categories are: Digital Prevention and Diagnostics, Mental Health, and Social Support, New Ways to Interact with Healthcare Teams and Providers, Disease Monitoring and Therapeutics, and Returning to Care (post-pandemic).

More than merely an award, the PDHA.eu initiative bolsters the vital role of healthcare innovation at the rapidly evolving intersection of technology and science, for both patients and providers.

PDHA.eu’s commitment to putting patients first, from the project themes to the judging panel members, truly sets it apart, as do its goals of sparking innovation, connecting patients and innovators, and creating a positive synergy within the communities.
