Healthcare Informatics: Innovators’ Showcase
Healthcare Informatics is delighted to announce our new “Innovators’ Showcase,” designed to promote, highlight, and spread stories of innovation across health IT throughout the year.
Seemingly every day now, the leaders of one or another patient care organization are coming up with brilliant solutions to age-old problems, as they leave behind established ways of doing things and find new paths forward that involve the use of information technology to improve clinical, administrative, financial, or organizational performance. Similarly, on the health IT vendor side, solution providers are increasingly helping their clients in a myriad of ways related to improving patient outcomes.
The idea is quite simple: we at Healthcare Informatics want to showcase this innovation more and more, and truly bring forward your great stories of transformational change. Our new Innovators’ Showcase portal will include:
- Profiles of past Innovator Awards Program winning teams, and semifinalist teams
- Follow-ups to how those organizations are continuing to innovate today
- Podcasts, articles, and commentary on innovation throughout the industry, to be displayed online and in print, based on your submissions
- An Innovators Lab, serving as a directory listing of innovators in healthcare IT
- Special recognition in Healthcare Informatics e-newsletters
We encourage you to use this opportunity to submit your stories of health IT innovation for editorial consideration. Let us know your story so can be a part of our Innovators’ Showcase!
