Do you want to be part of the inaugural class of home care winners for the McKnight’s Tech Awards? For this to be a possibility, you must submit your nomination today.

For the first year, the McKnight’s Tech Awards program includes McKnight’s Home Care, alongside the brands McKnight’s Senior Living and McKnight’s Long-Term Care News. There is no cost to submit an entry.

Winners will be recognized in three tracks: Home Care, Senior Living and Skilled Nursing. All providers are eligible. Gold, Silver and Bronze awards will be awarded in the following categories:

1. Quality – Winning entries will describe the technology involved and how it was applied to improve the quality of care or services.

2. Innovator of the Year – Winning entries will describe how technological innovation was key to the entry’s success and how it made a difference in the provision of care or services or the bottom line.

3. KISS (Keep It Super Simple) – Winning entries will describe a simple but effective application of technology that improved the provision of care, services or operations.

4. Building Bridges – Winning entries will describe the ways in which an operator is using technology to improve connections between staff members and residents and/or their families.

This year’s awards program will be a part of the McKnight’s Tech Awards + Summit taking place on Aug. 25 and 26. The summit portion will offer webinars through which attendees have the option to earn continuing education credits.

Nominations will be judged by a panel of experts, and the awards program is open to care and service providers only; vendors are not permitted to enter.

It’s not too late to be part of McKnight’s history! Tell your peers what you have done with technology in the last year to improve your operations, either for staff or patients. To enter or learn more about the awards, please visit
