We have been shortlisted for the ‘Best Digital Innovation in Healthcare’ category at this year’s CornwallLive EDGE Awards for our innovative self-testing app, engage.

The “Best Digital Innovation in Healthcare” category recognises technology and innovation in healthcare that’s helping to change the way patients are treated or how they control their own healthcare.

The CornwallLive EDGE Awards were set up in 2017 to celebrate Cornwall as one of the leading areas in the UK for digital and technology businesses. The awards, taking place on the 15 November, highlight the very best in software development and digital media in industries such as healthcare, fintech and space tech.

engage is an innovative, easy-to-use app that delivers a self-testing programme for people on warfarin and is available on smartphone, tablet and web.

The technology behind engage has been developed by the team at LumiraDx Care Solutions who are anticoagulation experts with over 20 years of experience delivering safe, efficient support software to the NHS in the form of INRstar, the market leading anticoagulation management software.

Anticoagulation patients in the UK can now access the first truly integrated self-care solution – available to 2,700 INRstar NHS locations across the UK with significant potential cost savings for CCGs.

Dr Mark Sullivan, Medical Director, LumiraDx comments:
“We are thrilled to be shortlisted as finalists for the awards and celebrates all the hard work the team has put in. It really shows that Cornwall is leading the way in developing health tech and the future of healthcare.”
