The Healthcare Engagement Strategy Awards (or #hesawards) has become the world’s greatest forum for sharing and identifying the world’s most effective strategies in healthcare engagement.
Now in its fourth year, previous winners since the launch of the first #hesawards in 2009 have included initiatives and people in pharmaceutical companies, NGOs, hospitals, television broadcasters and social networks.
What are we looking for?
The fourth Annual Healthcare Engagement Strategy Awards will recognise the strategies, initiatives and people that have achieved the most effective outcomes in health or healthcare during 2012. Any channel, any region, any area of healthcare. If it’s engaging people and achieving health or healthcare outcomes, it’s eligible.
We’re looking for innovation; new ideas that others can learn from. But not for its own sake – we would be likely to rank a low-tech strategy that’s achieving great outcomes higher than a shiny digital campaign that’s not making a difference.
We’ll include initiatives that have been on our radar over the course of 2012 in the nominations, but we want to hear from you: what have you seen, or been involved in, that we should celebrate? Who is behind the most effective healthcare engagement strategies of 2012?
A Healthcare Engagement Strategy award means genuine recognition for the winner. But more than that, the winning strategies provide a legacy of great practice for others to learn from. Ideas and strategies highlighted in previous years’ awards have inspired others to innovate in the months and years that follow. The heart of the Healthcare Engagement Strategy Awards is to see continually-improving engagement that changes lives.
