The HIMSS-Elsevier Digital Healthcare Award

The HIMSS-Elsevier Digital Healthcare Award aims to identify and recognise organisations within Europe that effectively use information technology to successfully improve quality of health and care as well as patient safety. During the ceremony, which will take place on Monday 28 May as part of the HIMSS Europe & Health 2.0 Conference, HIMSS and Elsevier will jointly be announcing this year's award winners and finalists. (This ceremony is closed and by invitation only).

This year, the HIMSS-Elsevier Awards team are seeking to recognise professionals in two categories:

Outstanding ICT Achievement Award

  1. To recognize outstanding achievement in harnessing ICT to provide significant improvement to patient care and safety.
  2. 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.
  3. 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

  1. To recognize the most innovative, creative and "out-of-the-box" ICT solutions used to improve patient care and safety.
  2. 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.
