The HIMSS-Elsevier Digital Healthcare Awards

2019 HIMSS-Elsevier AwardsThe HIMSS-Elsevier Digital Healthcare Awards aim to identify and recognise organisations across the globe that effectively use information and technology to successfully improve quality of health and care as well as patient safety. The European edition will take place as part of the HIMSS & Health 2.0 European Conference 2019, on 11-13 June in Helsinki, Finland. During the Awards Ceremony, HIMSS and Elsevier will jointly be announcing this year's award winners and finalists. (This ceremony is closed and by invitation only).

The call for submissions is now live. Submit your project now to get maximum recognition in the industry and share your story with the world. This year, the HIMSS-Elsevier Awards team are seeking to recognise professionals in two categories:


  • To recognize outstanding achievement in harnessing ICT to provide significant improvement to patient care and safety.
  • The ICT solution adopted may not be new but it has been effectively used by the awarded hospitals to significantly improve patient care and outcome and/or address major challenges faced by the hospitals.
  • Other limiting factors like the hospital financial background, the niche community that the hospital is serving, the long-standing problem that the target population is facing et cetera will also be taken into consideration.


  • To recognize the most innovative, creative and "out-of-the-box" ICT solutions used to improve patient care and safety.
  • Innovation can be in the form of leveraging on existing technology to come up with new and creative usage of ICT to significantly enhance patient care and outcome OR developing a ground-breaking technology that leads the way in ICT adoption.

Applications are now closed.

Here is an overview of our 2018 HIMSS-Elsevier European Digital Healthcare Awards. Make sure you are a part of it in 2019!

European Kate Granger Awards

Nominations are now closed for the European Kate Granger Awards for Compassionate Care - named after an English doctor who worked tirelessly to raise awareness around compassion in healthcare while undergoing treatment for cancer.

Winners of the European awards will be announced at the HIMSS & Health 2.0 European in June in Helsinki.

What our 2018 winners have to say:

“Receiving this award has been really important for our team at Maudsley Simulation in highlighting the importance of supporting health and social care staff to provide compassionate care through training and development. We’re particularly happy to have been recognised as we work in mental health and hope to continue breaking down stigmas and improving attitudes in this highly important area. It has also helped us to launch a new education and training venture through Maudsley Learning, as part of South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.” Winners of the Kate Granger Awards, category “Team/organisation”, 2018
