THE HIMSS-ELSEVIER DIGITAL HEALTHCARE AWARDS

Elsevier logoThe 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 2020, on 7-9 September 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 open. Submit your project to get maximum recognition in the industry and share your story with the world. It doesn’t matter how big your hospital is, the most important is that you strive to improve healthcare IT and are looking for innovative solutions. This year, the HIMSS-Elsevier Awards team are seeking to recognise professionals in two categories:

 

 

OUTSTANDING ICT ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

  • To recognise 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.

OUTSTANDING ICT INNOVATIONS AWARD

  • To recognise 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.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

These Awards are open to all hospitals and healthcare providers regardless of the size of your organisation. It is not open to commercial suppliers or vendors.
