Cyber Essentials Plus accredited

20 Jun, 2019

Bitjam has hit the next level. We are delighted to announce that we are now accredited with Cyber Essentials Plus certification.

The National Cyber Security Centre created Cyber Essentials to bring companies up to a common standard in the face of cyber attacks. Cyber Essentials Plus is a rigorous test of company cybersecurity and is carried out independently by a Certification Body.

Our team once again worked with D2NA of Newcastle under Lyme, who tested our systems and software. We are thrilled to be awarded the higher level certificate.

We take cyber security seriously. We are also accredited with
the NHS Data Security and Protection Toolkit which is a self assesment enabling organisations to measure and publish their own performance against the National Data Guardian’s ten data security standards. Providing assurance that we are practising good data security and that personal data is handled safely and to GDPR guidelines.

Bitjam has a strong social ethos, helping organisations who are working for social good, to perform better. We develop websites, apps and software that solve real world problems, connecting digital systems together and harnessing data more efficiently.

Bitjam shortlisted for Medilink WM Healthcare awards

31 Jan, 2019

We are pleased to announce we have been shortlisted for the ‘Partnership with the NHS award’ at the Medilink Medical & Healthcare Business Awards which will be held on Thursday 7 February 2019.

Our partners for the Beable project was Combined Healthcare NHS Trust working specifically with a group of patients managing their vascular wellbeing.

This project resonates with staff at Bitjam as it involved co-ordinating and collaborating with patients and NHS staff in the design and shaping of new digital services for the Trust.

We are only too aware of the challenges in engaging in true co-production and co-creativity, especially with the public and frontline staff who invest their valuable time to be involved in new digital service design. We are thankful for the time taken by the staff and patients to help shape the Beable project through the prototyping stage.

So, whether we bring back the award to Staffordshire or not, we feel the positive recognition so far should be something our partners should be proud of!

From Bitjam, thank you.

Bitjam Preferred Partner in Keele Business Bridge Programme for Second Year

17 Dec, 2018

Bitjam is proud to announce that we have been successfully selected to be the preferred partner for the Keele Business Bridge programme for a second year running. Bitjam will be providing a range of services from consultation on telehealth plus app and software development.

What is the Business Bridge?

Keele Business Bridge provides innovation support for a priority value/sector market, which focuses on both UK and overseas healthcare and med-tech markets. Led by the University and University Hospitals North Midlands, the programme will be building on a long-term relationship, providing access to wide-ranging expertise.

Staffordshire-based businesses within the healthcare markets can access funded specialist support, particularly services in technical and scientific advice, collaborative working on R&D projects and design, testing and validation of products. Successful companies can expect to receive business support, an innovation fund of £7000 and/or collaborative R&D.

The programme forms part of the new Keele Deal initiative, a strategic partnership between local authorities, Keele, Hospital Trust, the LEP and local business. The goal is to create an economic deal that harnesses the value of Keele as a research-intensive University to create higher value jobs locally.

We continue to meet the required criteria as an innovation partner because of our considerable knowledge and expertise in designing and collaborating on relevant projects in the health and social care industry. We’re looking forward to working with local companies with innovative ideas that match our company vision of harnessing technology to provide relief to vulnerable members of society.
