The 2015 McKnight's Excellence in Technology awards program is now accepting submissions from skilled nursing, assisted living and continuing care retirement community operators.

The awards focus on how providers use technology to better their communities. Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be recognized in five separate categories: 1) Quality through Technology, 2) Dignity through Technology, 3) the High Tech/High Touch Award, 4) the Innovator of the Year Award; and 5) the Transitions Award.

Past winners have included providers of all sizes, small and large, promoting many different kinds of technologies. Remember: The key is how it improves the lives of those living in your community.
