Big Health Shortlisted as Finalists in this year’s Healthcare Excellence Through Technology Awards

We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted as finalists in this year’s Healthcare Excellence Through Technology (HETT) Awards under the category, ‘Best Primary Care Digital Project’. The HETT awards are designed to showcase champions of digital health innovation and highlight great stories of transformation, with the Best Primary Care Digital Project award recognising projects adopting a digital-first model in the provision of primary care.

Big Health’s digital therapeutics, Sleepio for insomnia and Daylight for worry and anxiety, have been recognised as innovators in supporting equitable access and reducing health inequalities through the provision of computerised cognitive behaviour therapy (cCBT) throughout Scotland. 

With a steep increase in demand for CBT services for mental health, Big Health has been able to support this growing demand, with results from the 2012 clinical trial for Sleepio evidencing that 76% of patients experienced improvement in their sleep.* Additionally the 2020 UK clinical trial for Daylight evidenced that 71% of patients experienced reductions in anxiety. **

The awards will take place in London this November. Best of luck to all finalists!
