Amid unprecedented challenges, long-term care providers have been remarkably resilient and creative. Now, it’s time to be recognized for it.

With July at our doorstep, we are entering the backstretch of the entry period for the 2020 McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards. The recognition program is an opportunity to bring some light to your dedicated, likely stressed, staff. Winners will be featured in print and online coverage.

Entry to the annual recognition program is free. Honors will be bestowed in six broad categories.

Entries can be submitted for virtually any range of your operating procedures. There are six broad categories, meaning there’s at least one for you. Multiple nominations are allowed; there is no cost to enter but submissions must be made by providers.

Visit to nominate a deserving colleague, department or organization that is doing something notable to improve seniors’ lives. The entry form is straightforward and simple. Highlight any way that technology — high or low — comes into play. The entry deadline is July 24, after which a national panel of experts will determine the multiple 2020 winners.

Now is the time to tell others about the work you are doing that is making a difference. Hundreds of other providers have enjoyed the bright light of success in previous years. Plan your way to join them today at
