- Telefónica Tech received the award for its work in advancing digitalisation in the healthcare sector.
Telefónica Tech has won the Best Managed Services Solution at the IT Europa Channel Awards announced at a ceremony in London on May 19th, 2022. This award illustrates Telefónica Tech’s expertise as an Enterprise Managed Services Provider and its position as a strategic partner for the healthcare sector.
The award was in recognition of Telefónica Tech’s stand out transformation projects that have helped to advance digitalisation in NHS hospital Trusts in the UK. The award demonstrated the benefits gained from a stable enterprise managed service designed specifically for clinical services. Namely, a resilient network, prompt support, and the use of initiatives such as Single Sign-On and Self-Service Password Reset Trusts. These initiatives have helped to optimise the time spent providing care, instead of wrangling with technology.
Another factor that has contributed to Telefónica Tech gaining this recognition has been the greater efficiency it has helped the cash-strapped NHS achieve. For example, in one Trust cost savings were placed at £3million a year.*
The benefits provided by our SOC (Security Operations Centre) and SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) were also called out for improving cyber security ratings within hospitals and for reducing security risks through proactive, continuous monitoring of threats.
The IT Europa Channel Awards, formerly the European IT and Software Excellence Awards, are designed to recognise and reward excellence in software development, IT, and telecommunications solutions provision in Europe. Now in their thirteenth year, they are recognised as Europe’s most prestigious IT channel awards. The awards bring together leading channel partners, resellers, systems integrators, ISVs, MSPs, service providers, distributors, solution providers, and channel marketers from across Europe.
Mark Gorton, Managing Director of Telefónica Tech UK&I said: “This is another great step for Telefónica Tech in the UK and Ireland. We focus on doing the best for our customers and I am delighted that our team of experts within our Managed Services and Healthcare Centre of Excellence have achieved the recognition they deserve.”
Ellen Dickson, Strategic Director of Health added : “Healthcare needs a clear path to digitally transform patient care. Our specialist team is trusted by 42 NHS Trusts and a further 26 healthcare organisations and our infrastructure supports over 6 million patients across UK and Ireland. We are proud to stand side-by-side as a valued partner to healthcare organisations, and it is fantastic to be recognised for our expertise.”
Telefónica Tech UK&I also received recognition for its workplace transformation project for leading UK blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan, receiving Highly Commended in the Cloud Solution Provider of the Year category.
