Innovation Birmingham Campus-based Breaking Free Group has been announced as one of just 29 digital healthcare companies from the UK recognised in this year’s Global Health 100 Award list.
Over the past three years, the Global Digital Health 100 has become established as an international benchmark of industry activity for mobile, digital and connected technologies in healthcare. Recognising the top 100 innovators from the world of digital health, editorial staff from the Journal of mHealth spent six months analysing the innovative offerings of hundreds of companies worldwide before settling on their final list of pioneers, which also include leading names such as Babylon Health, Omada Health and Janssen.
Creators of a pioneering digital healthcare platform targeting addictive behaviours, Breaking Free Group’s team of behavioural scientists have created an evidence-based addiction treatment programme enabling people to overcome alcohol and drug dependence. The company also has an impressive portfolio of national clients and major charities including CGL and Turning Point, as well as NHS England who commissioned Breaking Free to deliver the world’s first online healthcare intervention in prisons in 2014.
Clive Bawden, Commercial Director at Breaking Free Group, said: “It has been an incredible year for Breaking Free Group with several major award and client wins under our belts. We are thrilled to be recognised as one of the major players in the healthcare industry, a sector which continues to go from strength-to-strength with the adoption of technology-led products and services.
“Moving ahead into 2017, we have some exciting potential client opportunities, both in the UK and overseas. We also continue to build our team here in Birmingham, particularly our software engineering team and would welcome approaches from those keen to build a career in this area with a new, innovative company.”
