Judging Process

Our panel of judges consists of Intalere representatives from executive, contracting and sales divisions. Judges will review each entry form and score the entries based on completion, project scope and outcome, nomination category relevance, impact on patients and/or employees, and innovation. The scores for each area are combined for the total score. A score threshold will be set; if the threshold is not met, no award will be given in that particular category. At the completion of the judging period, the scores are tallied and the top three scores (two acute care and one non-acute care) in each nomination category which meet or exceed the threshold are the winners. A facility may only win one award per year. Not all entries will receive awards.

Intalere will develop banners for the winning projects which will be displayed at Elevate 2018. At the conclusion of the conference, the banners will be shipped to the award winning facilities for display. Click here to view photos of banners designed for previous years' awards programs.

Best Practices Compendium

All projects submitted, regardless of awards outcome, will be included in the Intalere Healthcare Achievement Awards Best Practice Compendium, an electronic publication which is shared with all Intalere members and others in the healthcare industry. The compendium is an opportunity to acknowledge our members’ successes and to share best practices so others may learn from these experiences and implement similar initiatives at their facilities. Compendium projects may be used by Intalere for marketing purposes through blogs, success stories, etc.
