Medic52 has been named in 3rd place as one of Australia’s 100 most innovative products or services, in one of the largest and most audacious innovation awards of its kind in Australia – the Anthill Magazine ‘SMART 100’ Index.

This is pretty cool. Especially when the top prize was awarded to the awesome guys at AtomoRapid who have created the worlds smallest, cost effective and accurate device for detecting HIV. I am properly chuffed to have recognition like this from the Australia business community, and from the 50 judges who spent their time looking over 100 entries, rating each and every one of them!

Here is an excerpt from the Press Release, which you can download at the bottom.

About Medic52

Medic52 is the world’s first mobile app and data platform specifically designed for the ski safety industry. One built by people with on-the-ground experience, not just a bunch of nerds.

The purpose of this innovation is to save lives through the use of data and information. 

It does this by helping the casualty get help faster, for medical responders to collect better information from the incident scene, and allow resorts to understand why these incidents happen. Ultimately this information is used to improve risk management practice, educate the customer and help them be safer at their chosen activity.

About the Smart 100

The SMART 100 Index was created by Anthill Magazine in 2008 to identify and rank Australia’s 100 most innovative products, proving to be one of the largest surveys of its kind in Australia.

“In true Anthillian style, the SMART 100 is an ever-evolving, ever-improving experiment,” said Anthill founder and Editor-In-Chief James Tuckerman.

“It identifies and ranks new Australian innovations by applying a combination of crowdsourcing, collaboration and common-sense. We employ the judgement of ‘mavens’ and readers.

“Unlike your average awards program, we don’t lock a panel of expert adjudicators in a small room. Neither do we demand a thorough analysis of each applicant’s P&L statement. We don’t even request an historical snapshot of ‘runs on the board’ or commercial achievements.

“This is because innovation is future focussed. It is about identifying and solving problems in ways that will change the way we live, do business and think.”
