All hospitals located in the Asia Pacific region can participate. Small and big hospitals have equal chances of winning because the awards are for the success of projects, programs or services that were implemented during the award period and not for the overall excellence of the hospital. In this sense public and private hospitals, small and large ones too, have equal chances of winning. 

Entries must be for projects, programs, or services that were implemented or significantly enhanced from January 2019 to September 2020. In this sense, the awards are for the introduction of new projects, or for the improvements in 2019/2020 of existing programs and systems. In general, the judges favour new projects than enhancements.

In all cases, there should be objective, quantifiable, and verifiable measurements as to the effectiveness of the project.

Participating hospitals must be from the Asia Pacific. Hospitals of non-Asian origin are also eligible as long as the entry is from and for their Hospital in the Asia Pacific.

Entry Fee

The fee for each entry is USD100. And here are two offers who can avail for discounts:

  • Hospitals who send delegates to attend the HMA virtual conference will get 1 FREE entry for each paid delegate (and vice versa). If you decide on your delegates registration AFTER you submit the entries, please note that there will be no refund for the paid submission.
Full payment for your entries must be made on or before September 30, 2020 or the entries will not be considered.
