5 GHP Technology Awards 2022 Headquartered in Dossenheim near Heidelberg, Germany, with offices in Frankfurt and Ismaning, NEXUS / CHILI GmbH develops innovative software solutions for multimedia image management in medicine. EXUS / CHILI has three roots. Its RIS roots go back to the former companies, MEDOS and Inovit, both of which were established in the 1980s, while the PACS and telemedicine root, CHILI was created in 1997 as a spin-off from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). The current company, NEXUS / CHILI has been formed from these roots under the umbrella of NEXUS AG, in Donaueschingen, Germany. Despite being in an entity that belongs to NEXUS AG which has over 1,500 employees in around 20 companies across Europe, NEXUS / CHILI prides itself on having managed to maintain the culture of a start-up, even with having 100 employees of its own. These employees come from different study areas, mostly from the field of medical IT, meaning they bring a lot of expertise and versatile skills to the table. Being located in southwest Germany, NEXUS / CHILI benefits from being surrounded by several universities and research facilities, meaning great access to highly qualified personnel who can influence the research into its products. In their work, the NEXUS / CHILI team pay close attention to changing market demands or political subjects, such as the Hospital Future Act (KHZG) or the growing role of Patient Empowerment. This has enabled them to develop a variety of portal solutions such as NEXUS / PORTAL, CHILI Patient Portal, CHILI Teleradiology Portal, and CHILI Upload Portal. These are designed to accompany patients before, during, and after treatment, so that all kinds of data can be digitally made available to patients, hospitals, referring physicians, or post-treatment institutions at any time of the treatment process. These solutions cover RIS, PACS, and portals for teleradiology as well as telemedicine, and they have been on the market since 1982, catering to mostly clinics and hospitals of all sizes, including large university medical centres (teaching hospitals), as well as radiology departments and doctors practices. NEXUS / CHILI’s focus is to enable medical institutions to work most efficiently using its solutions that manage and optimise their entire medical workflow. They are tailored to meet individual needs, enabling the transfer of research results by working with the likes of DKFZ, and by continuing to pay close attention to the changing demands of the market. Founding Managing Partner of NEXUS / CHILI, Dr Uwe Engelmann tells us, “The foundation of the CHILI software was based on the observation that hospitals needed a faster and more practical way to store, archive and share medical images and documents that at the same time had to ensure data privacy.” The company’s software is classed as “medical software” in the meaning of the European Medical Devices Regulation MDR (EU 2017/745). It established a Quality Management System according to ISO 13485, and many SOPs to ensure the quality of the software, including documentation, nightly builds, and tests of the latest software. Ultimately, the team continue to work closely together and help each other in difficult times, such as during the pandemic. While that period may have been a challenge, the company did see the unexpected opportunity of telemedicine becoming more important and helping to manage the pandemic, for example, the portal was used for the delivery of COVID tests. Now, NEXUS / CHILI is showing no signs of stopping with its upcoming focus being on portals and integration of AI into its software and further supporting the digital diagnostics process.

6 GHP Technology Awards 2022 Impetus Digital is a Toronto-based, privately-owned, women-led company that provides virtual and hybrid meetings, events, and programs for life science companies around the world. Following the company’s success in the 2022 edition of the Technology Awards, we spoke with Vaska Hamanova, Global Business Development Director; Jasmeet Duggal, Account Director; and Travis Drew, Senior Digital Solutions Specialist, to find out more about Impetus Digital’s achievements and culture. Founded in 2008, there’s certainly an element of Impetus Digital that feels so very current and fortuitous. At a time when many businesses have tentatively moved online, Impetus Digital had already firmly established itself as the leader in the life-sciences space, setting the pace for others to follow. Partnering a honed expertise, technological innovation and client centricity, Impetus Digital has long exceeded all expectations in an industry that notoriously moves swiftly and – justifiably – demands results. As Vaska begins, Impetus Digital partners with a variety of clients across all stages of the product life cycle, “We work closely with marketing, medical affairs, market access, medical education, clinical development, and many other departments to virtualize their internal and external stakeholder meetings.” Of course, the crux of the company’s success hinges on its technology, becoming a crucial provider of virtual tools that boost efficiency, reduce excess resource expenditure, and dramatically increase information dissemination and collaboration. Here, Vaska continues, offering more detail: “When used together with our signature “White-Glove™” professional services, our multi-award-winning virtual platform–the Impetus InSite Platform®–can be used for hundreds of different virtual insight-gathering, peer influence, and unaccredited medical education programs. When the company was first founded in 2008, our focus was mainly on virtual advisory boards, steering committees, working groups, and needs assessments. Since then, we have added numerous tools and countless new use cases. Many of these have been developed in collaboration with clients or based on suggestions from their advisors.” This touches on an important element of Impetus Digital’s enduring success that it would be remiss to gloss over – a drive for constant refinement and improvement. One of the latest additions in this vein is Impetus Digital’s Ambassador Programs, as Jasmeet explains. “Virtual Ambassador Programs are a new medical education offering developed by our team. As part of these programs, clients engage 3–4 key opinion leaders (KOLs) as faculty to attend a national or international congress and summarise key abstracts of interest to HCPs from a specific country or specialty.” “Leveraging Impetus’ existing virtual tools and working with our strategic, digital, and medical writing experts, we then create multiple outputs from these summaries, including video vignettes, podcast episodes, slide deck summaries, infographic-style digital handouts, and more,” Travis adds. As briefly touched on, Impetus Digital has become the de-facto presence in the industry, offering tested solutions that beat the trend by over a decade. So, direct competition remains relatively scarce, and mostly dominated by newer companies entering the market. Yet, competition there is, and Vaska concludes by offering some commentary on how Impetus Digital has successfully outpaced any peer. “Firstly, we offer the largest number and variety of cutting-edge life science-specific asynchronous tools on the market! We also offer a comprehensive portfolio of best-in-class synchronous (i.e., hybrid/ web meeting, webinar, virtual event) tools, including state-of-the-art collaboration tools such as advanced whiteboard and polling tools, all hosted on the same secure and compliant platform. “Our signature White-Glove™ services and 360˚ behind-the-scenes support are what truly set us apart from our competitors. We provide a soup-to-nuts solution, including the virtual meeting platform, recruitment and stakeholder management services, strategy, technical support, and medical writing and content creation services. Finally, we put sustainability at the forefront of everything we do and are actively working towards carbon-neutrality by 2030 (aiming for 2025). We plant at least one tree for each new client project; since 2021, we have planted over 1400 trees across Canada and recently won an industry award for our sustainability efforts.” All things considered, Impetus Digital’s reputation and achievements left little doubt of their recognition in the program. Equally, with the launch of its Ambassador Programs, the company’s future looks set to continue the path it has forged over the last decade and a half – one of innovation.

9 GHP Technology Awards 2022 As technology becomes more sophisticated, so too must the security that lies behind it. The team at Quantum Base have come up with a unique way of working which sees smartphone authentication achieved in real-time, in an approach which is specifically targeted towards the pharmaceutical markets.We take a closer look to see what the Q-ID® solution is, and how it has earned the team such success in the Technology Awards. echnology has a habit of looking outward, always looking for the larger impact of innovation. For the team at Quantum Base, however, inspiration was found through looking a little smaller. Imagine anti-counterfeit tags that could be used by regular smartphones, that could be integrated into existing manufacturing processes, that could guarantee absolute consumer trust. It almost sounds too good to be true, but that’s precisely what the Quantum Base team have been able to deliver. Their incredible new development, available at a low cost but with innumerable benefits, has been designed to provide medical product information directly to the customer in real-time. For the healthcare sector, particularly the pharmaceutical industry, the Forbes report that “Quantum Base’s atomic-scale devices are impervious to cloning – faking of supply chains would become a thing of the past” is incredibly exciting. But how have they managed such a remarkable feat? The secret is through the use of Q-ID® QR codes. This lies at the heart of Quantum Base’s quantum secure anti-counterfeit solution. It is the world’s first of this sort. The benefits of this incredible new technology speak for themselves. The Quantum Base team eagerly explain why: “Q-ID® QR Codes which are impossible to copy, clone or fake and are validated with a standard smartphone to provide unbreakable global pharmaceutical brand protection.” Achieving this high standard of security was no easy task, and has involved taking a different approach when compared to the competition. “Our patented solution lies in the atomic world, where the laws of quantum mechanics exist,” we are told. “We harness the inherent randomness of quantum materials, and embed this to produce security tags that are simple to make, yet impossible to copy.” “At the core of each individual tag is a unique quantum ID derived from the atomic structure of the quantum materials we embed, which is then simply read by customers using a standard smartphone. Due to this inherent quantum randomness, Q-ID®s are impossible to copy, clone or fake, provide unbreakable product security, and create billions of unique identities, cheaply, for each and every pharmaceutical box or foil, globally.” The combination of quantum security with the ease of smartphone authentication will have a revolutionary impact on how many see the industry. “We make pharmaceutical brand protection in real time a reality for billions of end consumers and supply chain members,” explain the team. “Q-ID® pharmaceutical tag protection is developed to use the smallest real-estate possible on box or foil. Our flexible manufacturing processes allow for seamless delivery of our solution to empower you and your customers to stamp out the dangers of counterfeit drugs, while enabling absolute trust in both physical and online channels.” Technology holds enormous power, and the Quantum Base team have made it their mission to leverage what has gone before to achieve new levels of trust in a sector which demands the highest standards. “With smartphone authentication, Q-ID® creates a trusted digital platform to connect you and your consumers in realtime for brand and pharmaceutical product information, marketing, and consumer data, globally,” we are told. “Quantum Base are enabling pharmaceutical firms to protect lives, brand reputation and global revenues by our commitment to scientific discovery and its successful commercialisation for positive global impact.” The Global Head R&D of a Top 10 Hologram Manufacturer is reported to have said “Quantum Base have cracked the holy grail of anti-counterfeit”. The fact they have is why they are being recognised for their incredible achievement in this year’s Technology Awards.

10 GHP Technology Awards 2022 Radiology faces many issues, but often the solutions to these problems come from outside organisations to varying degrees of success.The team at Hexarad is made of a group of NHS consultant radiologists who understand the unique challenges of the industry. Their success in the Technology Awards is well-earned, so we take a closer look to find out more. Founded in 2016, Hexarard is an end-to-end platform solution, focused specifically on solving the key issues facing radiology, not only in the UK but across the world. Although at an early stage of development, this high-growth healthcare firm has managed to make a name for itself as a provider of technology-driven solutions that has been proven to boost radiology capacity and address the key causes of diagnostic delays. The heart of the platform is clearer communication between the various parts of the healthcare process. To avoid patient delays, Hexarad connects healthcare providers with a network of radiologists to get scans reported remotely, as well as providing access to a range of services and technology that enable better imaging workflow management. Optirad, a workflow management tool, streamlines radiology departments and reduces by scan reporting delays by deploying the workforce as efficiently as possible. With many hospitals working across multiple sites, this solution is designed to account for this, assigning specialist reporting to the most appropriate radiologist. It also has rota management, intelligent allocations, business intelligence and intelligent supply and demand forecasting features. The incredible power of what Hexarad has to offer has seen the business grow rapidly over the last two years. It is now a leading teleradiology provider to both the NHS and private customers. Key to this growth is the incredible reliability of the service offered by the Hexarad product and team, which means that teleradiology is often over and above the industry standard. With such exciting developments already undertaken, it’s little wonder that the team are exploring new ways in which they can support the stretched NHS system. The latest healthtech innovation is an on-call platform, designed to optimise teleradiology outsourcing to not only reduce unnecessary patient delays, but also to decrease the number of reporting errors and significantly improve hospital efficiency and patient flow. Again, building on the unique knowledge of those who have worked within the system, the Hexarad team have designed to the platform to address the current long referral processes, diagnostic delays, poor visibility of patient progress, opaque clinical governance and poor quality clinical information. Since being launched in 2022, and adopted by two NHS trusts in the UK, improvements to patient safety have been significant and the response immensely positive. The challenge faced by many in the healthcare sector when it comes to radiology is that there are too many scans and not enough radiologists to deal with them. The solutions offered by the team are designed to support healthcare systems to deal with this crisis. It has driven the team to create new environments where individuals can thrive as opposed to be crushed by the weight of expectation. A number of NHS pilot projects over 2022 and 2023 will give the team more data on the real-world efficacy of the Hexarad Platform, which will allow for the development of a superior product. Recently, the team closed a £4.5 million Series A investment round which will allow them to continue to grow and improve the Hexarad Platform, as well as growing both their NHS and private customer base. The future looks bright for these talented innovators. We can’t wait to see what they do next!

11 GHP Technology Awards 2022 Patient-Centric Pain Relief Breakthrough Technology of the Year 2022 (USA): AVACEN® Oct22408 Based inCarlsbad,CA,AVACEN® (Advanced Vascular Circulation Enhancement) Medical improves microcirculation and gives full-body pain relief in as little as 15 minutes. Diseases and health conditions are complex, and can take an overwhelming grip on our lives, but with AVACEN Medical, users can find relief and even comfort noninvasively, often without the use of any drugs. This award-winning company has caught our eye for its innovative use of thermotherapy technology, and now is the time to take a closer look. “Pain Relief from the Palm of Your Hand.” Founded in 2009, AVACEN Medical utilizes pioneering technology to deliver noninvasive, drug-free, over-the-counter medical devices that help users manage pain stemming from a variety of health conditions. With over 8,000 devices field tested and sold, AVACEN Medical has rapidly become a giant within its realm. Its technology is being used globally and has provided over 20 million treatments thus far. Technology inventor and AVACEN Chairman, Thomas G. Muehlbauer tells us, “Our customers include both retail users for home-based devices, as well as professional users including physicians, chiropractors, osteopaths, podiatrists and naturopaths among other specialties.” By working efficiently and creatively, this new technology has proven to be popular within the medical sphere – ensuring we all have noninvasive treatment alternatives, often without the need for invasive surgery or pharmaceuticals in general. The AVACEN® “single point treatment” system is a patented, FDA Cleared Class II medical device that couples negative pressure with heat therapy to increase microcirculation into a unique vascular network – all from the palm of your hand. The single point of treatment operates quickly and effectively to slightly raise blood temperature throughout the entire body, dilating capillaries while decreasing blood viscosity. By addressing microcirculation, AVACEN Medical has found a way to temporarily alleviate pain without going under the knife. Its methods are capable of relieving pain after 20-to-30-minute treatment sessions, and its thermotherapy is much different versus using heat alone. With regards to the most recent developments, AVACEN President and CEO Anthony Shimkin shares, “AVACEN Medical launched three new products over the last few months, including our third-generation technology for home users (AVACEN HOME XL) and professional users (AVACEN PRO+). The Company also launched a new Cardiac & Stress Screening (CSS) device - an accelerated plethysmography device designed to quickly assess arterial health and heart rate variability in as little as one minute.” As a manufacturer, AVACEN Medical has 17 U.S. and international patents backing its developments. AVACEN Medical has produced some of the most innovative and life-altering pieces of technology, creating opportunities for people to live more fulfilling lives. AVACEN Medical has changed the lives of countless people who suffer with conditions where chronic pain is a huge side effect and symptom. Anthony informs us, “Chronic pain is considered by many to be an epidemic. In the U.S., up to 116 million are impacted, more than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined, with over 30% of people suffering globally.” “Our devices are a viable alternative to opioid medication to treat pain. There is a significant amount of legislation designed to control opioid use. In the U.S. alone, 143 million opioid prescriptions were written in 2020, with up to 100,000 deaths per year related to misuse. The Company is consistently looking at noninvasive, drug-free approaches to solve health issues.” AVACEN Medical’s USP or unique sales proposition is that its internal culture involves innovation, accountability, and a customerfocused outlook – helping AVACEN Medical to build a strong reputation and sturdy relationship with customers from around the globe. Its team is dedicated, adaptable, and brimming with positivity, ensuring each step of the job gets done correctly and with passion at the forefront. Informing us of AVACEN Medical’s plans to improve the future, Anthony shares, “AVACEN is looking into new applications for our technology and devices, in areas such as maintaining normal body temperature (or normothermia). We are also investigating how our technology could be used to treat other conditions, like improving wound healing times.” Researching microcirculation has been a game changer for AVACEN Medical, and the devices it has created. Anthony updates us, “The topic of microcirculation is rarely highlighted, but is so important to understand related to epidemiology. For instance, in wound healing, the skin’s microcirculation is reduced by 40% between the ages of 20 to 70 years old (Tsuchida Y., 1993).” Although AVACEN Medical’s thermotherapy devices are FDA Cleared for pain relief due to a variety of causes like arthritis, impaired microcirculation in general is tied to a variety of different diseases. The Company has completed several feasibility studies in new disease areas and plans to continue to investigate where its technology can noninvasively treat different ailments. Now that AVACEN Medical has won the Patient-Centric Pain Relief Breakthrough Technology of the Year 2022 (USA) award, it will continue to gain even more recognition around the world. We are excited to have had the opportunity to present its work to you, and we are looking forward to seeing what it does next with regards to new applications for its ground-breaking technology and devices.
