DrFirst Launches Award for Healthcare Providers and Organizations Using Technology to Unite the Interconnected Healthcare Universe
ROCKVILLE, Md., January 15, 2021 –Nominations are open for a new award recognizing Healthiverse Heroes. The award is offered by health technology pioneer DrFirst to honor healthcare providers and organizations that are breaking through information silos that get in the way of clinical collaboration and patient care.
“We created this award because we are inspired by fellow innovators and pioneers in healthcare,” said G. Cameron Deemer, president of DrFirst. “The pandemic has been an extraordinary challenge for everyone, making it all the more important to honor those who found ways to be forward-thinking, implementing technology to help transform healthcare collaboration.”
The award is an extension of DrFirst’s efforts to unite the Healthiverse, a term the company introduced in 2020 as part of its 20-year anniversary to represent its vision for connecting people at touchpoints of care with the information they need when they need it.
The nominations will be judged by DrFirst’s clinical team, including its chief medical officer and principal pharmacist, and others with backgrounds in medicine, nursing, emergency medical services, pharmacy, and dentistry.
Awards are offered in seven categories, including healthcare providers; hospitals and health systems; pharmacies; emergency medical services; life sciences; vendors of electronic health records systems, health information systems, and pharmacy information systems; and payers and pharmacy benefit management organizations.
DrFirst will announce awardees in February 2021 with a press release and social media. Honorees will also receive a plaque and an award image for their website and social media.
Nominations can be made on the DrFirst website by January 31, 2021. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited.
