Who are the judges? How will they judge? Or how do they pick the winners and excellence awardees?
HMA China partners and specially selected experts are formed into six (6) judging sub-committees, one for every award category. These judging teams review the entries submitted to them, and make final recommendations to the conference advisory committee.
The Boards of Judges consists of representatives from local or international hospital associations, selected speakers, members of the Advisory Board, and healthcare leaders in the region. The selections of the judging teams are then compiled by the secretariat and approved by the chairman of the awards.
The successful hospitals are those who in the OPINION of the judges’ best fit the category criteria. There is usually one winner and one to three excellence awardee. Note that if there are no exceptional projects submitted in a category, the Board of Judges is not committed to give an award.
