BAMPTD online platform won the first prize in the Patient Project category in the second edition of the Healthcare Innovation and Good Practices competition, organized by Capital Weekly and the biopharmaceutical company Abbvie. 52 projects participated in the competition, with the best projects being honored during the Sixth Annual Conference on Innovation and Good Practices in the Health Sector. The award of BAMPTD CEO Boryana Marinkova and FBPF Chairman Ivan Dimitrov was presented by Prof. Assen Baltov - Director of the University National Emergency Hospital "Pirogov".

Bulgaria's first online signaling and search platform for medicines in short supply was evaluated by a jury of proven healthcare experts, led by Dr. Daniela Daritkova - Chairperson of the National Assembly's Health Committee. The members of the jury met on October 30 and voted in real time on a five-point system with criteria regarding the benefits for patients and how the practice improves or saves their lives. The projects that demonstrate the introduction of innovation or good practice, which has not been implemented in our country yet, were highly appreciated.

The innovation and good practice of BAMPTD platform consists in the organization of signal collection and patients' service. The alert form is extremely convenient and does not require patients to fill in personal data except a contact phone number, drug name and place of search.
