Pinnacle Award for Quality and Patient Safety

HANYS is now welcoming nominations for our 2020 Pinnacle Award for Quality and Patient Safety. This award recognizes member healthcare organizations for initiatives that improve the quality of healthcare delivery in New York. Completing a Pinnacle Award nomination also satisfies the requirement to submit a success story for participants in HANYS’ Commitment to Excellence (C2X℠) program.

Nomination deadline: Feb. 3

All HANYS members are encouraged to apply for this award. Each year, a panel of expert judges from across the country reviews all nominations and winners are honored at HANYS' Annual Membership Conference. All submissions are published in a compendium to help raise awareness about the accomplishments of HANYS' members.

HANYS encourages members to use the Pinnacle Award process to internally and externally highlight their success stories and achievements. Members are invited to reference the published Pinnacle Award submissions from previous years to garner ideas, identify best practices and network.

New submission process for 2020!

For 2020, HANYS is using Evalato, a user-friendly application that makes it easy to submit your nomination(s).

The simple, two-step submission process allows you to toggle through multiple nominations. You can also start a nomination, save it and come back to it at any time to update and finalize it. When you are ready, a single click sends your submission to our panel of judges.

We look forward to your feedback on this new submission process.
