Kora Healthcare is delighted to announce that it received the Innovation of the Year at the Pharma Industry Awards 2016 for the Hydra’Range project.

The winning project Hydra’Range was specially developed for patients with swallowing disorders or dysphagia and was recently launched in the UK by Kora Healthcare. The Hydra’Range is novel range of  pre-thickened fruit flavoured waters for the dietary management of Dysphagia and represents a new innovation in an underserved patient cohort and where innovation  has been  long-overdue. The Hydra’Range is designed to offer safer patient swallowing by providing a convenient pre-thickened drink with an accurate fluid texture and consistency to increase patient compliance and mitigate risks associated with fluid intake for patients with swallowing problems.

The Pharma Industry Awards recognise and celebrate the most original and innovative individuals and companies that demonstrate excellence in the Irish Pharma Sector. The Innovation of the Year award, sponsored by Portalis, was presented to Kora Healthcare CEO Conor O’Daly at the Awards Ceremony in The Ballsbridge Hotel on October 13th 2016.  Kora Healthcare was also shortlisted for the Pharma Company of the Year (SME).
Commenting on the award, Kora Healthcare CEO, Conor O’Daly said “On behalf of Kora Healthcare,  I am delighted to accept this award recognising the Hydra’Range as Innovation of the Year.  From an early stage in the development process, we quickly identified that as a patient cohort, dysphagia was an underserved and often overlooked common clinical problem with a surprisingly large but diverse patient population. Having recently launched this Hydra’Range in the UK, we believe that the Hydra’Range does offer something meaningfully unique, not only to dysphagia patients but also healthcare professionals and carers alike’.

Congratulations to all the Pharma Industry Award Winners!
