Be Recognized for Your Quality Improvement Initiative!

The Health Quality Innovators of the Year Awards represent HQI’s commitment to improving health care in communities by recognizing organizations that are using evidence-based approaches to quality improvement that deliver better care, better population health and lower health care costs.

Awards will be given in five categories:

  • Collaboration recognizes organizations committed to bringing others together to solve health care challenges.
  • Health Equity recognizes organizations that have successfully implemented interventions to address disparities by race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geographic location, disability, and/or sexual orientation across a range of conditions.
  • Population Health recognizes organizations that work to improve the health of patients and communities through prevention, treatment and improved access of care.
  • Rural Health recognizes rural health care facilities that have made outstanding contributions to rural health care.
  • Workforce Resiliency recognizes organizations that have successfully implemented initiatives or programs within their organization aimed at reducing burnout, increasing workforce wellness, improving retention and reducing turnover.
