Due to outpouring requests from both vendors and providers, we have decided to extend the deadline to submit to this year’s Innovator Awards Program.
While a number of excellent submissions have already come in, many program participants have requested more time so that they can be sure they are submitting the best and most innovative case studies possible. This is why Healthcare Informatics is now giving both providers and vendors until Friday, December 22 to submit for the 2018 program.
For a refresher, on the provider side, the Healthcare Informatics Innovator Awards Program recognizes leadership teams from patient care organizations—hospitals, medical groups, integrated health systems, and other healthcare organizations—that have effectively deployed information technology in order to improve clinical, administrative, financial, or organizational performance.
The Innovators Program, as it has in the last few years, also recognizes vendor solution companies who are asked to describe their core products or services in five brand new categories this year. For the first time, we are asking vendors to submit their innovation in one of five critical health IT areas: Data Security; Value-Based Care; Revenue Cycle Management; Data Analytics; and Patient Engagement.
We hope that you, our readers and valued participants, appreciate the extra time to submit your innovation to this prestigious program. Thank you and let us know of any questions you might have.
