The price is awarded for the use of digital pen and paper technology within the European healthcare sector and is based on the recently published Frost & Sullivan report, Strategic Analysis of Care Management Systems in Europe.
Frost & Sullivan's Award for Industry Innovation & Advancement is awarded to a leading company within an industry that, through pioneering technology, sound business strategy and research efforts, has been successful in moving the state of the industry forward.
“One of the crucial requirements of the European healthcare sector is an error-free data capture, storage and usage mechanism that can make data easily accessible and applicable at the point of care. This is exactly where Anoto's digital pen and paper technology comes to the rescue. Anoto is the inventor of the first commercial digital pen and paper technology that has already began to carve a niche for itself in the field of healthcare electronic data capture workflow,” says S. Priyan Viswanathan, Industry Analyst, Healthcare & Life Sciences IT at Frost & Sullivan.
Anoto's digital pen and paper technology electronically captures and saves hand-written information. This eliminates the need for manual data entry into electronic systems, which saves a lot of time and reduces the number of errors.
Frost & Sullivan points out the advantages with Anoto digital pen and paper technology compared to other electronic data capture technologies. These include being more user friendly, and taking less time to learn and to implement compared to devices such as laptops and PDAs.
“We are very proud of this award. The fact that our technology is recognised as an alternative for traditional electronic data capture within healthcare by a renowned and independent analyst firm such as Frost & Sullivan is proof of our success. We also see a steady increase in the number of digital pen and paper based solutions within the healthcare sector, where the technology improves documentation and administration as well as the quality of care. However, this success would not have been possible without our global partner network. It's our partners that build the solutions that are appreciated by the industry,” says Anders Norling, CEO, Anoto.
