GSK and Novartis lead at PM Society Digital Awards

And agency-side Health Hive Group, the Earthworks and 90TEN topped the charts

PM Society Digital Awards 2017GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis made their mark at last night’s 2017 PM Society Digital Awards in London last night, each picking up two golds at the ceremony.

GSK’s My PAH mobile app by the EarthWorks and its ERS meeting by ebee Health were rewarded, as were Novartis’ COPD life is calling by Health Unlimited and the HACk – Healthcare Access Challenge by its Sandoz unit.

Bayer, MSD and Teva all picked up a gold each, for work that included multichannel work in hypogonadism and budget modelling in antifungal prophylaxis.

GSK - alongside partner agency The Earth Works - was also acknowledged for its work on the MyAsthmaApp, which received one of two new Inspiration Awards.

HealthiQ picked up the other Inspiration Award on offer for its ‘ground-breaking’ approach to the diagnosis of children with ultra-orphan metabolic disease MPS I.

Agency-wise, Four Health Media took home the big win of the night as they were announced the Digital Team of the year - another new category, beating off competition from Radical Departures who were announced runners up.

90TEN also won big with two golds for their ‘brilliant’ HIV PRIME campaign, however the Health Hive Group cleaned up with two golds for its VR simulation project, as well as one silver.

Other agency gold winners included HealthCircle Advertising, Oi, RFA Advertising & Marketing, Saatchi & Saatchi and Sudler Milan.

Rachel Farrow, co-chair at the PM Society and its Digital Awards lead, said: “It was great to see as many as 35 agencies and 34 client organisations represented in the finals of this amazing competition.

“The wide spread of awards across the agencies showed that there is no single standout provider in healthcare digital, there are numerous highly talented agencies for the industry to work with.”

There were 15 categories in this year’s awards -  which is now in its eighth year – with the innovation category split into two, which was awarded to The Health Hive Group and Sudler Milan.

Farrow added: “I’m really proud that these awards have gone from strength to strength, with the standard of work extremely high, increasing every year.”
