Healthcare Informatics has once again been recognized by the American Society for Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE) for demonstrating writing excellence in two of the society’s editorial categories for 2017.

Healthcare Informatics indeed won twice in ASHPE’s 2017 Awards Competition, which honors writing excellence and insightful reporting among U.S. healthcare publications. For the fourth consecutive year, Healthcare Informatics won an award for its signature “Top Ten Tech Trends” special report, this time taking home the Gold Award in the Best Special Report/Section Category. Healthcare Informatics also won a Bronze Award in the Best Case History Category for Editor-in-Chief Mark Hagland’s story on the first-place winning team in the 2016 Innovator Awards program, UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Healthcare Informatics’ Top Ten Tech Trends report comes out every year in the spring and gives readers insight into how their worlds could be shaped in the next several years as it relates to health IT. It is a widely quoted issue, and one of the best-read every year. The 2016 report covered an extensive array of health IT’s most pressing issues: from FHIR; to MACRA/MIPS; to cybersecurity; to physician documentation reform; and much more. All of the 2016 Top Ten Tech Trend stories can be read in full right here.

Meanwhile, Hagland’s cover story on UT Southwestern Medical Center, the first-place winning team in the 2016 Innovator Awards Program, told a fascinating story how the patient care organization, via its Ambulatory Quality Outcomes Project, has been able to turbocharge quality improvement in physician practice. Indeed, UT Southwestern is blazing the trail for its colleagues nationwide, showing them what is possible when the right vision, strategy, planning, execution, IT, and analytics, are combined into successful initiatives.

The full list of 2017 ASHPE winners can be seen here. Two of Healthcare Informatics’ sister-publications in the Vendome Group family also won awards: Long-Term Living and Addiction Professional.
