Former NHS Nurse Wins ‘Innovator of the Year’ at Women in Tech Awards

A Nurse turned health-tech founder who lives in Greater Manchester has won an award at this year’s Computing Women in Tech Excellence Awards.

The awards, in their seventh year, recognise top-performing women from across the technology space and play an important role in increasing diversity in tech across the UK.

Emma-Louise Fusari, 42, the founder of health-tech startup In-House Health, won the ‘Innovator of the Year’ award for developing her data-informed workplace health and wellbeing solutions and for her commitment to helping business leaders establish and eliminate the root cause of issues causing work-related ill-health.

Emma-Louise said, “I’m delighted and very proud to have won this award, especially as I was up against women from household-named businesses such as Lloyds Bank, Natwest, BT, Amazon Music and Transport for London. I would like to thank the judges for recognising that I’m changing the status quo of current workplace wellbeing and that there is a better way of working that will impact and improve health, productivity and economic outcomes.”

 

Having built a business that allows her to use her 21 years of nursing knowledge and experience in chronic disease management and public health promotion, Emma-Louise is enabling organisations to make a measurable impact on their people, performance and profits through her newly developed clinically led and evidence-based health and wellbeing risk audit and programmes.

 

“To be recognised for doing what I love, which is making a difference for those I have the pleasure of working with and supporting, is truly humbling. For others to see and share my vision is phenomenal too and to be acknowledged and celebrated in a prestigious tech award is also pretty cool,” added Emma-Louise.

 

Computing’s Women in Tech Excellence awards took place at Magazine London on Thursday 23rd November and received more than 3,000 nominations. At the ceremony guests were welcomed by international rugby star Maggie Alphonsi and the awards were hosted and presented by comedian Lucy Porter.
