Tech Awards

The McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards program is once again accepting entries. 

Senior living and care’s most celebrated tech-oriented showcase and educational event will again include educational webinars, along with a multifaceted awards program, featuring both online and in-person ceremonies.

The awards entry submission deadline is June 23.

Finalists in each category will be announced Aug. 23, with a virtual summit and awards ceremony to follow Sept. 20. An in-person celebration will take place the first week of November in Chicago.

McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Award entries are being accepted in four categories in each track: skilled nursing, senior living and home care. Winners will be recognized for technology uses that improve efficiency, demonstrate innovative thinking or harness new tools to benefit residents and staff members.

This annual showcase is a free opportunity for providers to demonstrate leadership and outside-the-box thinking when it comes to today’s tech. Submissions don’t have to involve complicated or costly devices or programs. The national, independent panel of judges is interested in clever approaches that lead to smarter workflows and better quality of life. 

Also back again is the Technology Partner of the Year track, which will encompass an all-division umbrella competition for skilled nursing, senior living and home care.

Entries will be accepted through June 23 in Quality, Innovator of the Year, KISS (Keep It Super Simple), Building Bridges and Tech Partner of the Year categories. More details are available at

Also see the entry site for more details on categories and rules. Market vendors are eligible to enter only the Tech Partner of the Year category.

In September, the Summit will feature educational panels. A full agenda will be announced at a later date.

Technology Awards Winners will be recognized across McKnight’s Long-Term Care News, McKnight’s Senior Living and McKnight’s Home Care and all their social and traditional media platforms.
