A health and social care technology company has been recognised as one of the ‘1,000 companies to inspire Britain’ in 2020.
HAS Technology Group, a global provider of innovative technology solutions, has been identified in the ‘professional services’ category for driving economic growth and leading innovation across the UK over the last three years, in a report published by the London Stock Exchange Group.
The report recognises the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized businesses, adding that these businesses are “vital in helping the British economy recover from the impact of COVID-19”.
Figures released by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport in February 2020 revealed that the UK’s technology and digital sector added £149bn to the overall UK economy in 2018.
Mick Crosthwaite, executive chairman of HAS Technology Group, said: “We are delighted to be identified by the London Stock Exchange as one of the select 1,000 companies to inspire Britain in 2020, especially in light of the Covid-19 crisis.
“In this challenging year for businesses, it is more important than ever to shine a light on those companies that are continuing to inspire Britain through their growth and entrepreneurship. We are particularly proud of the work we have done to deliver innovative digital solutions to our health and social care sector, to ensure vulnerable people continue to get the care they deserve.”
With its origins dating back to 1999, HAS Technology Group is focussed on helping customers improve quality and drive efficiencies through dynamic use of data.
Being recognised as a company to inspire Britain comes at the end of a year which has seen the group’s fall prevention technology (ARMED) named as winner of the 2020 Tomorrow’s Care Awards and 2020 Innovation of the Year.
Meanwhile, HAS Technology’s market oversight solution, PAMMS, was named winner of ‘Partnership of the Year’ at the Forward Healthcare Awards 2020 for its work with LondonADASS, supporting the organisation with COVID-19 data collection and analysis.
