Clanwilliam wins award for leading GP system, Socrates

Clanwilliam has won a coveted award for its GP system Socrates at the annual Irish Healthcare Awards.

Socrates scooped the prize for Best Use of Information Technology amongst stiff competition from some innovative healthtech systems and initiatives across Ireland.

Socrates supports hundreds of Irish healthcare professionals to deliver patient care with its user friendly and intuitive practice management software. In announcing the award win, host Dr. Sumi Dunne commended Socrates for providing the functionality that enables GPs to manage the HSE’s Chronic Disease Management (CDM) programme for their patients. The ability to use the system to seamlessly send electronic prescriptions to pharmacies was also praised.

Socrates recently partnered with Billink Payments to enable patients to securely pay for their care remotely online through the click of a button. In the new year, Clanwilliam’s new patient portal app Pippo will launch to allow Socrates users to offer online bookings for patients, further streamlining the care pathway and experience for clinicians and patients.

The event, held on 1 December at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin, celebrated and rewarded the achievements, innovation and resilience of the Irish healthcare sector.

Eileen Byrne, Managing Director said: “We are delighted to have won this award in such a competitive category. We’ve been serving the Irish healthcare market for over a quarter of a century, developing software that provides healthcare professionals with the strongest possible digital foundation.

Socrates is an excellent example of how good clinical technology can enhance processes, create efficiencies and support excellent patient experiences.”

Socrates is part of Clanwilliam Ireland, the Irish based division of global healthcare group, Clanwilliam. From its beginnings as a 3-man start up, the Irish-head quartered business now has offices on three continents, with customers in 20 countries and nearly 2 million clinical users.
