Excellence in Clinical Practice Improvement Award

The Excellence in Clinical Practice Improvement Award recognizes outstanding leadership or academic contributions that aim to improve the quality of healthcare. Examples might include: efforts to improve the degree to which patients receive proven aspects of care (eg, increasing guideline concordant care), reducing harms to patients from medical care (patient safety), as well as innovations in health services delivery—implementation of existing models or development of new models of care that improve outcomes, the patient experience, or healthcare value.
