Highly Commended

Ulcerative Colitis Endoscopic Index of Severity Online Tool

By: UCEIS Group
With support from: Lucid Group

Summary of work

At Lucid, we are committed to making a difference in the disease areas we work in. Outside our client work we consult with experts to help us understand disease areas and what opportunities there are for us to contribute to improving healthcare.

We recently collaborated pro bono with a group of expert gastroenterologists to create an online tool which would address an identified gap in the clinical care of ulcerative colitis (UC). Endoscopy is central in assessing UC severity using a scoring index, yet no validated indices exist. Working with this expert team, we produced a web-based platform that not only delivered data to validate the UCEIS as a reliable index, but also educated gastroenterologists on using the UCEIS in their clinical practice. This online UCEIS module is endorsed by the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO) and hosted, at no cost, on ECCO’s e-learning platform, reaching more than 2,000 practising gastroenterologists.

Our passion for improving patients’ lives was the only driver for this project. We are proud of our successful partnerships with the UCEIS group and ECCO, and are excited by the difference this tool will make to improving care for patients with UC across the world.

Judges' comments

This demonstrated a clear medical need and provided a novel approach to solving it. It’s a commendable pro-bono project and a demonstration of how industry and agency can bring their skills to the table in partnership with healthcare providers to improve innovative initiatives. Great insight, real understanding, clear objectives and professional collaboration which resulted in solid outputs.
