What the judges said about the company’s primary care provision:
- ‘Vita Health Group provided a very impressive service, not only managing to continue services through the pandemic by rapid adoption of new delivery models’
- ‘What Vita Health Group has done over the past year exhibits commercial focus, clear public purpose, innovative use of technology and strong people skills’
Vita‘s work in mobilising four large NHS primary care mental health services during the Covid-19 pandemic won particular praise. The company also ensured that its corporate customers could access a full service, and integrated ‘life-changing innovations’ into treatment plans.
The company's use of technology to increase access to mental health care and support, drive user engagement and enhance service choice helped it gain the IT Innovator of the Year 2021 award. The judges’ comments included the following:
- ‘It’s great to see workplace health and wellbeing addressed in an innovative way’
- ‘Vita Health Group has delivered impressive digital innovation over the last year’
Derrick Farrell, Vita Health Group’s chief executive, said: ‘These are special awards for us because they are recognition of the team’s outstanding contribution to healthcare during a time like no other, and where the need for mental health support has never been greater.
‘We are dedicated to making people better and to do that we commit ourselves to developing valuable solutions for patients and clinicians alike.’
