Holmusk recently was recognized at the annual ceremony for the national Positive Practice in Mental Health awards. Positive Practice in Mental Health is a mental health collaborative based in the United Kingdom.
Holmusk received a Quality Improvement and ServiceTransformation award for its implementation of MaST in partnership with Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust.
MaST, a clinical decision support tool for providers, uses data visualizations and predictive analytics to support caseload management and improve mental health care delivery. MaST has now been implemented in eight NHS Foundation Trusts across the U.K. and has contributed to decreases in inpatient hospitalizations, thereby resulting in cost savings.
Holmusk and MaST were also highly commended by Positive Practice in Mental Health for Digital Innovation and Community Transformation.
This is the second year in a row that MaST has been recognized by the collaborative. In 2021, MaST received an Innovation in Digital Mental Health award in partnership with Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust.
“We are honored to receive this award and are pleased that we are being recognized for our hard work to develop and implement a tool that can substantially improve the quality of mental health care delivery,” said Caroline Gadd, UK Managing Director for Holmusk. “We of course could not do any of this critical implementation work without our partners, and we thank Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust for their commitment to the project.”
