Deadline for Entry: December 12, 2014 (If received by November 14, 2014, there is no application fee)

Submit your completed entry by completing and sending the Entry Form (word document) to Aaron Krol, along with any supporting documentation.

The work for which recognition is sought must have been done in the last two years and be substantially complete.

Nominations are open to R&D and scientific facilities and labs in pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies, academia, government, medical or related institutions and organizations, as well as public and private research organizations.

We encourage all SCOPE Exhibitors and Sponsors to participate!


Upon submission of this nomination, you grant Clinical Informatics News the use of any photos, video or product/company information gained as a result of this process, without further permission.

Entry Tips from Judges


  • Highlight customer success stories and case studies that advance the industry.
  • Describe the problem addressed and its importance
  • List relevant technologies/products used on the project
  • Identify key results and quantify the ROI associated with the project (e.g. man-hours or $ saved; new capabilities)
  • Quantify the resources expended (hours, personnel, $)
  • Explain broader impact on the community/ industry


  • Enter promotional “brochure-ware” or rewrite press releases
  • Make vague, unsupported qualitative claims
  • Emphasize technology (product) features over project results—integrate the two
  • Forget to clearly identify positive results/benefits!
