2022 tech awards logo

Finalists for the 2022 McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards have been chosen by a panel of expert judges. The list below represents the best in each of four categories in the Senior Living track.

The group of 25 long-term care stakeholders judged hundreds of nominations, assessing the programs for their overall value in improving resident care and services, impact, relevance, execution and creativity.

“Each year, we are excited to see, recognize and share examples of how technology is being used in big and small ways to improve the lives of older adults and those who care for them,” McKnight’s Editorial Director John O’Connor said.

Award winners will be announced and celebrated Oct. 4 at 3 p.m. ET during the second annual McKnight’s Tech Awards + Summit, an online event also featuring three webinars and the chance to earn one continuing education credit. Find more details about the three webinars offered during the event here. The awards ceremony and accompanying educational sessions are free and open to everyone, but registration is required.

Winners also will be feted at an in-person event Oct. 17 in Denver. For more information and to register, click here.
