Good luck to two teams from Oxford University Hospitals which are in the running for awards at this year’s prestigious British Medical Journal (BMJ) Awards being held on Wednesday 24 April.
The Translational Gastroenterology Team has been shortlisted in the ‘Digital Innovation Team’ category, and the Oxford Sepsis Strategy has been named as a finalist in the ‘Innovation in Quality Improvement Team’ section.
The Translational Gastroenterology Team, based at the John Radcliffe Hospital, was nominated for their award after developing a remote monitoring system called TrueColours Ulcerative Colitis. This programme lets patients input their symptoms, with the information fed back in real time to the hospital.
Meanwhile, the Trust’s sepsis strategy has been nominated for the ‘Innovation in Quality Improvement Team’ honour. The Sepsis Working Group, established in 2015, aims to drive quality improvement around the management of patients with sepsis.
