The McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards program is back and once again accepting nominations from providers who have used technology to improve the care of their residents.

There is an opportunity, in other words, for virtually any operator taking good care of their charges. Opportunities exist in 12 categories among the skilled nursing and senior living divisions: High Tech/High Touch, Innovator of the Year, Keep It Super Simple, Safety, Transitions (skilled nursing) and Activities (senior living). A national, independent panel of experts will judge submissions. 

Visit to learn more or nominate your organization, or another that is making its mark with some aspect of technology (low tech or high tech) to improve seniors’ lives. The entry deadline is July 24.  There is no cost for entry; submissions are restricted to provider organizations.

Stories about past McKnight’s Tech Award winners can be found here. Stanley Healthcare is the Platinum sponsor of the program this year. MatrixCare is the Gold sponsor for the senior living track.
