Healthcare Informatics has once again been recognized by the American Society for Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE) for demonstrating writing excellence in the society’s Best Special Report editorial category for 2017.

Healthcare Informatics’ Editor-in-Chief Mark Hagland, Managing Editor Rajiv Leventhal, Associate Editor Heather Landi and Contributing Editor David Raths won the Bronze award for the Top Ten Tech Trends 2017 Report, which was published in Healthcare Informatics’ March 2017 issue. ASHPE’s 2018 Awards Competition honors writing excellence and insightful reporting among U.S. healthcare publications.

For the fifth consecutive year, Healthcare Informatics won an award for its signature “Top Ten Tech Trends” special report—last year, editors took home the Gold Award in the Best Special Report/Section category; in 2016 and 2015, the Top Ten Tech Trends won Silver awards and in 2014, that special report was recognized with a Bronze award. It is the sixth straight year the publication has been recognized by ASHPE. In 2013, it won the Gold Award for Online News Coverage.

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 2017 report covered an extensive array of health IT’s most pressing issues: from value-based care delivery and purchasing; to iterative learning around big data; to FHIR and interoperability; to blockchain; and much more. All of the 2017 Top Ten Tech Trend stories can be read in full right here.

On receiving notification of the award, Healthcare Informatics Editor-in-Chief Mark Hagland said, “All of us on the editorial team at Healthcare Informatics are deeply gratified to receive recognition again this year for our ‘Top Ten Tech Trends’ package of articles, one of the most anticipated and well-read sets of articles of its kind in the healthcare IT industry.
