What is Innovation?

Innovation is the category with one of the widest scopes within the Excellence Rankings as it looks at novel new approaches in every area, from the fruits of research and development to novel new business practices. What all the ranked entities have in common is the demonstration of new concepts not just within their own business but in the sector as a whole.

The category includes any projects that demonstrate an innovative approach to the market. The category crosses over with many of our other categories and can include new products, novel product features, new business practices, new marketing and sales strategies and more.


This research period has seen the highest concentration of innovations arise in the areas of oncology and heart disease device development.

Another clear trend is the development of innovative testing kits for various diseases and conditions including skin cancers, COVID 19 and general blood clotting tests. One interesting development during this research period is the increasing use of telehealth in the field of medical devices with innovative apps being created that could turn an ordinary smartphone into a medical testing device.


The category consists of medical device companies and research organisations that have created innovative medical devices.
