The Power of Digital for Healthcare in the Spotlight at 2018 AMY Awards

 

Digitally inspired solutions to healthcare issues have dominated the winners’ list at the 2018 AMY Awards held last Friday. From a voice activated patient assistant, hidden hearing test, normalising mental health via digital support, secret help text messages for domestic violence victims and heart-wrenching strategies to address the issue of voluntary euthanasia; the AMYs winners demonstrated the power of digital to make a real difference to the lives of Australians.

Deloitte Digital took home the ultimate award, the AMY Grand Prix Award, for Lucy, a voice activated patient assistant developed for The Prince of Wales Hospital. The same entry also won the AMY Award for Trailblazing – Product. According to the AMY Awards jurors, Lucy “delivers real patient outcomes with a practical, easily scalable, low hardware impact solution.”

“This year’s AMYs clearly show how pervasive and persuasive digital has become,” said Mandy Eyles, General Manager at Digital + Technology Collective. “The quality of work was outstanding - kudos to the finalists and huge congrats to the winners!”

Three agencies – CHE Proximity, Cummins&Partners and Liquid Interactive - led the field tallying three awards each.

The CHE Proximity campaign “Making the List” for Lego won The AMY Award for Customer Acquisition – Campaign, which the jurors noted, was “innovative from start to finish on a small budget”; while two campaigns for Cochlear, “Hearprint” and “Hearing Test in Disguise” won for “connecting the physical with digital and changing the lives of so many” and “excellent execution”.

Cummins&Partners took out the AMY Award for Social Good – Campaign and the AMY Award Healthy living – Campaign for their “Stop the Horror” campaign for Go Gentle Australia. In selecting the campaign the jurors said, “it brings a difficult issue into view in a sensitive way and engages the audience with an extremely smart digital mechanic”. The Cummins&Partners campaign for the Australian Secret Intelligence Service, “the Most Interesting Job Interview”, won the AMY Award for Efficiency – Campaign and was noted as being “sophisticated gamification with an amazing user interaction that makes you realise what a job interview would be like” by the jurors.

A mental health campaign for the Department of Health by Liquid Interactive and Speedwell won both the AMY Award Healthy living - Product and the AMY Award for Collaboration; and was praised as a “good way to recognise a sensitive issue with a comprehensive approach that extended beyond digital to the GP waiting rooms as well”. Liquid Interactive also took home the AMY Award for Customer Engagement – Product for its Ripple App for Australian Public Service Commission that the jurors felt was ‘transformative, well developed and executed in response to a tough brief.”
