CSIRO and HealthEngine big winners at WA Incite awards
The CSIRO's Yogi Kanagasingham was named Achiever of the Year at the WA Information Technology and Telecommunications Alliance (WAITTA) Incite Awards at the weekend for his stellar work over many years for the CSIRO Australian e-Health Research Centre, including the development of the Remote-I retinal imaging technology for diabetic retinopathy.
Perth-headquartered online appointment booking service HealthEngine took out the Dr Mal Bryce WA Tech Company of the Year award, named in honour of former WA deputy premier and ICT industry stalwart Mal Bryce, who died earlier this year. HealthEngine was also inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The AeHRC was also named as the most innovative enabler in healthcare for the eye screening program. St John Ambulance was a finalist for its first responder mobile app.
All winners and national iAward finalists will go on to compete in the national iAwards in Melbourne later this year.
