Health Data Management is sponsoring a new awards program to honor individuals who have been true game changers in the design, advocacy, deployment and development of electronic health records technology.

Individuals from across the spectrum of industry stakeholders-hospitals, group practices, payers, associations, federal and state governments, and health technology vendors-have helped in the evolution of EHR technology and its increasing adoption by provider organizations. HDM wants to recognize their extraordinary efforts to increase patient safety and improve the quality of care in the United States.

Individuals from any health care industry stakeholder organization are eligible for the EHR Game Changers Awards. Nominations should be submitted to and include the following information:

* Full name and job title of nominee

* Name of their organization

* A short biography

* In-depth explanation in 1,000 words or less of why the nominee should be recognized as an EHR Game Changer, including specific achievements, such as how their efforts benefited their organization and/or the industry, or the policy or product they participated in, as well as what makes their efforts extraordinary.

A panel comprising industry leaders and HDM's editorial team will judge the awards. Award winners will be recognized at Health Data Management's annual conference, beginning Nov. 14 in Chicago, and also be invited to participate in a panel discussion during the conference.
