Analyst firm focuses its 2021 annual awards program on products and companies that may have a considerable future market impact.
After a year that experienced explosive growth in digital health, Juniper Research is focusing its annual awards program on innovations emerging from this sector.
The 2021 Future Digital Awards for Digital Health Innovation will evaluate the impact of cutting edge technologies, including digital therapeutics, telemedicine, and remote health.
The awards program is designed to recognize organizations that have made outstanding contributions to their industry and are positioned to make a significant impact in the future. Past winners, when the contest was open to entries from outside the healthcare sector, include Argus, Firstbeat, Google, Light, OrCam, and Quanergy.
"Since 2008, the Future Digital Awards have been awarded to tech companies at the forefront of their respective fields: companies that deliver imaginative, innovative products or services that have the potential to disrupt their ecosystems and provide significant benefits to their target audience," according to a news release.
Winners will be selected based on the contributions they have made to their business sector, as well as their ability to have a considerable future market impact.
Categories in this year's contest include:
- Telemedicine and remote health
- Digital therapeutics and mental health
- Healthcare innovation
While the above categories focus on products, there is also a separate "judge's choice" category, which will assess the people and companies contributing the most to the cause of digital healthcare.
There is no charge for submission and entries are due by May 7. Each category will have a gold and platinum winner, with winners to be announced on June 15.
Based outside of London, Juniper Research is a mobile and digital tech sector analyst firm.
Mandy Roth is the innovations editor at HealthLeaders.
Entries can encompass solutions for telemedicine, remote health, digital therapeutics and mental health, and healthcare innovation.
Entry deadline is May 7.
