The annual contest recognizes operators who are using tech tools to improve care and operations. This year’s competition has been expanded to include two tracks with a combined total of 20 categories, double the number of categories compared with last year.

In senior living, categories include:

  • Activities;
  • Dignity;
  • High-Tech/High-Touch;
  • Innovator of the Year;
  • KISS (simple projects);
  • Marketing;
  • Quality;
  • Safety;
  • Training; and
  • Transitions.

A separate track recognizes skilled care providers.

Stanley Healthcare is this year’s Platinum Sponsor. Matrixcare is the Gold Sponsor of the senior living track, and Netsmart is the Gold Sponsor of the skilled care track.

Winners will be announced in the fall and recognized online and in print.

The annual awards, coordinated by McKnight’s Senior Living and sister brand McKnight’s Long-Term Care News, are judged by an external panel of experts. For more information, and to enter, visit
