A NORTH Yorkshire technology company was rewarded for its innovation at last night’s Medilink Healthcare Business Awards 2011, held at the National Railway Museum.

Longhand Data Ltd, based at Welburn Business Park, between York and Malton, provides data collection services for healthcare providers using digital paper technology and digital pens to enter data. It won the Medipex Partnership with the NHS award at the regional awards for the healthcare industry.

Each winner will now be automatically shortlisted for the national Medilink UK awards which will take place in early 2012.
