From the Virginia BioTech Association enewsletter:
"In today's rapidly evolving healthcare environment, improving the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery is more important than ever. The healthcare industry must therefore foster and encourage progress and creativity. The 2012 Virginia Healthcare Innovators Awards co-sponsored by the Virginia Biotechnology Association (VABIO) honors Virginia providers and organizations/entities that have developed innovative ways to improve quality and/or efficiency. This year, the Virginia Chamber of Commerce will host the awards event at its Virginia Health Care Conference on June 7, 2012.
Awards will be given to organizations/entities that have developed breakthrough products, processes or services with the potential to revolutionize healthcare in Virginia. This leadership, demonstrated through excellence in innovation, will be judged in various categories.
As an integral part of Virginia's healthcare community, please consider nominating Virginia healthcare organizations/entities you feel would be good candidates for recognition in any of the award categories listed above. Self-nominations are also permitted. Nominations are now underway, and will be accepted via an online form. The deadline for submissions is March 2, 2012.
