Since 2011, the Healthcare Internet Hall of Fame (HIHOF) has honored the “best of the best” in our industry. Individuals, organizations, and products have all received recognition from HIHOF.
The inductees each year are chosen by a Board of Judges, comprised of a select group of individuals who are chosen to serve two-year terms and are responsible for the evaluating and selecting the Healthcare Internet Hall of Fame inductees.
Four of the current judges are retiring from their positions, so the Board is looking to fill their slots. If you have been looking for an opportunity to serve in an industry-wide capacity, consider applying to be a judge for HIHOF. HIHOF is an independent organization whose annual inductees are selected by a Board of Judges composed of experienced industry providers and vendors.
The four retiring judges have shared their thoughts about their term of service on the Board of Judges.
- Michael Cutter, StayWell: “It’s been an honor not only to participate in a forum for evaluating nominees who made remarkable and lasting contributions to healthcare communications, but also to serve alongside dedicated industry heavy-hitters on the HIHOF board of judges.”
- Stephanie Cannon, Nationwide Children’s Hospital: "It was an honor being part of the inaugural group of HIHOF judges. As a new discipline of work has evolved, HIHOF has truly been able to point to many key leaders both past and present who not only inspire but share their knowledge along the way. Taking time to look back and acknowledge those achievements in which individuals, organizations and partners broke new ground is a way to tell our story and, I feel, inspire those who currently are faced with challenges."
- Becky Wardzala, Hendricks Regional Health: "As we rush through our busy professional lives, we probably do not take enough time to recognize an individual's contributions, especially when that person is outside our own organization. And yet, these are the very people we look to for knowledge and inspiration, so it is very appropriate to have the HIHOF awards to note major accomplishments and remember others who have served on the leading edge of innovation for healthcare. It's been a great experience to be on the judging panel for HIHOF. I've had the opportunity to network with the other judges and learn about so many people that have made a lasting impact in our industry. I look forward to seeing the awards continue to grow that thrive. Congratulations to all the inductees and thank you to Greystone for creating this program."
- Robin Snow, Aefinity Interactive, LLC: "Serving as a HIHOF judge was a wonderful experience. It was an opportunity to honor many of the giants in our field who shaped our industry through leadership, innovation and mentoring. It was also very rewarding in that I was introduced to many of the younger thought leaders who I was not aware of and who are shaping our industry now and into the future."
The time commitment for a judge is approximately 5-6 hours over a 6-month period. All meetings are conducted virtually. Attendance at HIHOF activities at the Annual Healthcare Internet Conference is strongly recommended, but not required.
