Entries for the IHF Awards 2024 are now accepted

The IHF Awards return to recognize the excellence and outstanding achievements of hospitals and health service providers around the globe.

The winners of the IHF Awards 2024 will be presented during a special Awards Ceremony at the 47th IHF World Hospital Congress happening on 10-12 September at the Windsor Convention & Expo Center in Rio de Janeiro.

Entries must be submitted through the IHF online submission platform. Nominations will be accepted until 19 April. For enquiries, please contact awards@ihf-fih.org.

 

NOW OPEN: Applications for the i-to-i Innovation Hub

The i-to-i Innovation Hub is looking for ground-breaking innovations that revolutionize how hospital leaders provide care worldwide. The showcase of innovations will be part of the programme at the 47th IHF World Hospital Congress this September.

Under the 2024 theme, ‘Hospitals of the Future,’ innovators can submit unique products, processes, or services that are addressing specific challenges in healthcare settings.

Entries must be submitted through the IHF online submission platform. Nominations will be accepted until 19 April.

 

What is the difference between the Innovation Hub and the IHF Awards? Can I apply for both?

The Innovation Hub spotlights cutting edge innovations that bring new approaches to dealing with challenges faced by IHF member hospitals. They are new ideas for products, services, designs or processes that disrupt the traditional way of working and revolutionize healthcare delivery.

The IHF Awards are presented in recognition of excellence that has been demonstrated in seven categories, with performance judged against specific criteria.

It is possible that a solution that is submitted to the Innovation Hub could also meet the entry criteria for an IHF Award. If you do choose to submit the same solution to both the Innovation Hub and IHF Awards, you must note this in your entry to both programmes and provide the same contact information for both submissions.
