Emergency Consult wins two business awards!21 Nov 2023

Emergency Consult, and it’s CEO Jenni Falconer, went home winners from Friday night’s Waikato Business Awards gala dinner at Claudelands Event Centre in Hamilton.

The telehealth service took out two awards – the business won the Innovation Award and CEO Jenni Falconer was named Emerging Leader of the Year.

The judges official feedback said “Emergency Consult has created a platform that facilitates rapid and efficient emergency consultations. They have bridged the gap between patients and medical experts, providing real-time advice at the touch of a button.

“This innovation has the potential to significantly reduce response times, improve patient outcomes, and ultimately save lives. Their dedication and commitment to address a critical need in healthcare is truly commendable.”

Falconer says both awards can be attributed to outstanding team work, “We have a team of people who strongly committed to digital transformation in the health sector. We’re heralding hybrid healthcare to protect health services – and the people in them.

“It’s a privilege to work alongside passionate doctors, nurses and our ops team everyday who share the same drive to make healthcare better,” she said.

Head judge Dr Heather Connolly of Waikato University’s Management School said the judges were impressed with the quality of this year’s finalists.

“We were also pleased to see the number of entries up on last year...The calibre of entrants was excellent and it’s always encouraging to see businesses enter for the first time,” Connolly said.

The Waikato Chamber of Commerce business awards were presided over by a panel of 29 judges who assessed 76 business entries - from Te Kauwhata to Taupō.

This is the first time Emergency Consult has entered the awards.
