Digital writing specialist Anoto has picked up an honour in the Patient Safety Awards.

It won the “technology and IT to improve patient safety” accolade at the organisation’s yearly awards dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, with its work with the Gwent Frailty Programme being applauded.

The initiative deployed 300 Anoto digital pens in the first phase of a community healthcare programme to improve the management of frail citizens in their homes.

Robert Bakewell, general manager of Anoto Ltd, said: “The Gwent Frailty programme utilises digital pens as a data capture system, which digitises patient notes as they are written. The community nursing team is able to transmit the notes back to the head office via Bluetooth connectivity by using Blackberry smartphones.”

Mr Bakewell explained that the work allows patients to be cared for in a “familiar and comfortable” setting, enabling them to lead a normal life.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801623760-ADNFCR
