The final countdown has begun: Long-term care providers have less than 48 hours to enter the third annual McKnight's Excellence in Technology Awards. Submissions will be accepted through July 30.

The prestigious awards recognize skilled nursing facilities, assisted living providers and continuing care retirement communities that have used technology to take care quality to new levels.

Independent judges will choose Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in five categories: Quality through Technology; Dignity through Technology; the High Tech/High Touch Award; the Innovator of the Year Award; and the Transitions Award.

Previous winners have included facilities of all sizes and projects of varying levels of complexity — but all earned industry-wide praise and showed how dedicated, savvy providers can unlock the promise of technology.

All winners will be featured in McKnight's Long-Term Care News later this year.
