DNV GL Healthcare awards announced

Beginning in 2016 hospitals across the US will have the opportunity to showcase innovative programs for quality and patient safety.

The new DNV GL Healthcare Innovation Award is open to all hospitals and health systems accredited by DNV GL.

For more information, and to make a submission online, visit www.dnvglhealthcare.com/innovation. The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 29, 2016.

Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of five judges. Using a point system, applicants will be scored on how creative, inventive, and beneficial their projects have been to the success or betterment of their hospital or community.

The top three selections, including one grand prize winner, will be notified on May 31, and showcased at the 2016 DNV GL Healthcare Symposium in Orlando.

“Fostering and identifying innovation is a defining principle of our accreditation process for hospitals,” says Patrick Horine, President of DNV GL – Healthcare. “We also believe in bringing these ideas forward to the healthcare community, and this new Award program is a great way to do that.”
