The AboutPharma Digital Awards, now in their 11th edition, brought together more than 560 Digital Healthcare projects classified into 16 categories. The 2024 awards ceremony was held in Milan, Italy, on 16 May 2024. This year came the encore for the Campania-based company, Kelyon, led by Gaetano Cafiero.

Already in 2022, Kelyon won an award with AZFastnet - an online platform developed for AstraZeneca, the biopharmaceutical company, that simplifies and speeds up tests to determine the mutational status of specific genes in oncology and oncohaematology.  
This year, Newborn Screening Campania (SNC) platform - developed by Kelyon in collaboration with DXC Technology for Soresa S.P.A in the framework of the Campania Region’s Sinfonia project - was awarded the top prize in the awards section on ‘HTA, supply and care’.  
The Newborn Screening Campania (SNC) platform facilitates multi-centre and multi-disciplinary collaboration in managing information flows to promptly detect inherited metabolic diseases, hearing loss, and other rare inherited disorders. It was co-designed with CEINGE Advanced Biotechnologies, a centre of excellence in advanced biotechnology for the research and diagnostics of genetic diseases. The SNC platform enables monitoring of the National Health Service's provision of Essential Levels of Care (Livelli Essenziali di Assistenza, LEA) to all newborns. Moreover, SNC enables the registration of Certificates of Assistance during Delivery (Certificati di Assistenza al Parto, CeDAP), collecting data on all newborn deliveries in the Campania Region.
Kelyon’s CEO, Gaetano Cafiero, expressed his satisfaction: “Winning this prestigious award again is further recognition of Kelyon’s commitment to creating solutions that have a positive daily impact in the prevention of diseases, particularly rare ones, through the fundamental use of screening. The competence and passion that drive our team are confirmed. We thank the many hospitals and pharmaceutical companies that have been relying on our solutions for years.” 
Since the company’s foundation in 2008, Kelyon’s mission has been to design, develop, and promote digital solutions that improve the patient experience in the management of life-changing diseases. In this context of constant research and innovation, the SNC platform for newborn screening is one of the most advanced preventive medicine tools that helps to avoid irreversible damage to newborn babies. It stands to become a model for all other regional administrations in Italy. 
EHTEL is proud to acknowledge Kelyon’s success in this important field of preventive medicine, and the company’s activity in leading what is happening in Italy and its regions
