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.

The annual awards honor operators improving care through the creation or use of low- and high-tech tools. 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. 

Learn more at or nominate an organization putting technology to good use to improve seniors’ lives. The entry deadline is July 24.  Entries are free, but submissions are restricted to provider organizations.
