This follows 2020 and 2021 when Ascenti was also acknowledged as a finalist in these categories. The HealthInvestor Awards are one of the most prestigious and well-attended awards ceremonies in the health and social care sector, and are held annually to celebrate excellence and innovation within independent healthcare.
This year Ascenti has been recognised for our pioneering app-based musculoskeletal physiotherapy service, Ascenti Reach.
The Ascenti Reach app provides users with a digital assessment, tailored exercise programmes, self-set reminders, motivational progress tracking, condition-specific educational content and a chat feature allowing them to contact an Ascenti physiotherapist any time.
Reach is unlike anything in the UK as it combines a robust digital triage with comprehensive self-management support in a single cohesive journey, and blends cutting-edge health-tech with our highly-skilled, directly-employed physiotherapists to deliver unrivalled quality of care. Our data shows it drives high patient engagement and satisfaction, and delivers strong outcomes.
The technology is not white-labelled; it has been purpose-built by our in-house Ascenti Digital team made up of over 20 developers, analysts, engineers and product specialists. This in-house digital expertise sets Ascenti apart from other health-tech businesses - we are a healthcare company through-and-through, led by senior clinicians on our Executive Team, with a network of 300 directly-employed Ascenti physiotherapists.
Chief Commercial Officer at Ascenti, Kevin Doyle, commented: "We are so pleased that Ascenti has been recognised in two categories at the HealthInvestor Awards 2022. Following four years of development, Ascenti Reach is the first physio app to provide an end-to-end hybrid solution, including digital triage, personalised video-led exercise plans and 24/7 access to online clinician support, allowing patients to get advice and support at a time and place that suits them.
"Our innovative Reach service is something we are all hugely passionate about. It empowers patients to have more control over how their care is delivered, and we are excited to see it disrupt the healthcare landscape."
HealthInvestor are hosting the ceremony on Wednesday 8 June at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, when the winners across 25 categories will be announced.
