As we enter the last quarter of 2010, we start our search for the most effective healthcare engagement of the year to be named winners of the Healthcare Engagement Strategy Awards 2011.
The 2010 Awards, the first of their kind, identified six winning strategies from healthcare engagement pioneers in pharmaceutical companies, patient networks, not for profit organizations and hospitals in Europe and the United States. Our analysis of the winning strategies provided a legacy of best practice that has inspired much innovation in healthcare engagement throughout 2010 and it is my hope that the 2011 winners will continue to inspire progress next year.
We’ll be announcing more details in the coming weeks, but for now, start to think about nominations. Nominations will open on 1st October and you can nominate by Twitter using hashtag #hesawards, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with subject hesawards. Tell us who you nominate, and why. We’ll also be scanning the horizon and reviewing some examples of healthcare engagement we’ve seen throughout this year.
The Healthcare Engagement Awards celebrate healthcare engagement strategies that achieve great health outcomes. It’s as simple as that. Any channels; any region; any area of health. There are no categories, so that you don’t have to fit your nomination into a box. No entry fees. No complex entry process. Multiple entries will not increase the chances of winning – we won’t be counting ‘votes’, but feel free to add your voice and support any existing nomination.
Nominations will close on 31st December 2010 and judging will take place in January 2011. Judges will be industry experts selected from Creation Healthcare’s global team.
It’s as simple as that. We’ll keep you updated, and announce the winners, via Twitter (follow @EngagementStrat for latest updates as the Awards develop), and in the Healthcare Engagement Strategy e-journal which you can subscribe to free of charge at http://engagementstrategy.tv.
