Does Your Company Have the Edge? Get Recognized by Healthcare Informatics

At a time when every stakeholder group in healthcare is feeling pressed to contribute to solutions that will make a difference in improving the U.S. healthcare delivery system, it would be short-sighted to cover innovations taking place among provider organizations, payer organizations, health information exchanges, policy and research organizations, and the like, and not also consider some of the noteworthy advanced being made by software vendors in U.S. healthcare.
 
That’s why, for the first time, we at Healthcare Informatics have created a new recognition vehicle, the “Leading Edge Awards,” whose recipients will be recognized during the same reception in which we will be recognizing the winners of our annual Innovator Awards. While Innovators is solely designed to recognize provider accomplishments, we have opened up a separate recognition program to allow vendor companies to submit entries to “Leading Edge,” in one of three categories: interoperability, clinician workflow improvement, and cost savings. Please click here to access the submission form. There is a $1,500 fee for each entry, which can be completed at our payment center following submission of your entry.
 
 
A panel of distinguished judges will assess the submissions, and will determine the winners, and the winning organizations will be recognized during our Innovator Awards reception on April 13, 2015 in Chicago, during the 2015 HIMSS Conference. They will also have the opportunity to support descriptions of their breakthroughs in the March/April issue of Healthcare Informatics. This is an exceptional opportunity to be recognized by industry leaders for accomplishment in vendor innovation. Don’t wait—please prepare your submission to the Leading Edge Awards today! Best of luck!
