Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2009 -- The Adaptive Business Leaders (ABL) Organization is asking for nominations for the 2010 Innovations in HealthcareSM ABBY Awards, to be presented at the 12th Annual Innovations in HealthcareSM Awards Event, on April 28, 2010, at the Radisson Hotel, in Newport Beach, California.

To qualify for consideration, all nominated Companies or their nominated Divisions must have an innovative product, service or application of technology that is already in the marketplace, or an approach to the delivery of healthcare with "success metrics" that prove it is contributing to lowering the cost of quality healthcare. Nominated companies should fall into one of three categories: Innovations in Medical/Bio-Technology; Innovations in Healthcare Information and Telecommunications Technology; or Innovative Approaches to the Delivery of Healthcare.
Previously nominated firms/divisions are encouraged to resubmit their nomination for a product, service or approach as long as it is substantially different from an entry that has previously won an ABBY or was a Finalist in 2008 or 2009. Click here to view previous Winners and Finalists.
In February 2010, Members of ABL's Innovations’ Finalist Selection Committee will choose three Finalists in each category. A top-level executive from each Finalist company must be able to attend the April 28th Awards Event. Each Finalist company will be given the opportunity by ABL to make a 5-minute video presentation, which will be presented at the Awards Event. ABBY Award winners will be determined by secret ballots cast at the Innovations in Healthcaresm Awards Event on April 28, 2010, by attending ABL Members who have seen ALL of the Finalists' video presentations in each category.
Attendance at the 12th Annual Innovations in HealthcareSM Awards and Event Ceremony is open to senior executives of healthcare, health information and telecommunications technology, and medical and bio-technology firms, as well as all ABL Members.

The 2010 ABBY winners will be in excellent company. For the past 11 years, at ABL's Innovations in HealthcareSM Awards Event, healthcare industry leaders have honored the organizations whose products and services are judged to be the most innovative, with proven metrics assuring their cost-effective quality. Previous ABBY Award winners and nominees have included companies that have made breakthroughs and transformative advances in medical devices, diagnostics, therapeutics, information technology, and electronic solutions, as well as organizations that have applied innovative systems and technology in providing care, enrolling beneficiaries, and reducing healthcare costs. ABBY winners in recent years have included: “Innovative Approach” winners Dakim Inc., Alameda County Medical Center, Health Hero Network, and Sutter Health’s eICU; “Medical Technology” winners Osmetech Molecular Diagnostics, Accuray, Aperio Technologies, and eV3 Neurovascular Division; and “Healthcare IT” winners Epocrates Inc., eHealth, Kaiser Permanente’s Internet Services Division, and M*Modal. Since 1999, winning the ABBY Award for many of its 30+ recipients has been a major catalyst to greater market acceptance and enhanced peer recognition.
About the Adaptive Business Leaders (ABL) Organization:
ABL supports the needs of its Member CEOs by providing them with monthly, confidential personal advisory boards, during which these top-level executives draw on the experience, knowledge and skill sets of their peers in a vertical industry – using a “multi-coach approach.” The core component of the CEO Membership experience is the group Round Table meeting. Members meet once a month for a half-day with a group of peer CEOs, Presidents, COOs and Division General Managers from non-competing companies, all from the same industry (healthcare, technology or medical device), in a trusted and confidential board room-like setting, which allows ABL Members to tackle topics and enhance their decision making and business performance. ABL Members also gather several times a year at workshops and conferences to exchange ideas and connect with other chief executives beyond their own peer groups. In effect, ABL Members serve as one another’s business coaches within the Round Tables and are encouraged to connect and leverage their fellow-Member peers’ particular skills and expertise for additional leadership development, one-on-one, outside of their monthly group meeting. In addition, each Round Table’s Facilitator also serves as an objective business advisor, offering executive and industry insights and advice. ABL's Chief Executive Leadership Development Round Table program is currently offered in California's Greater Los Angeles, Orange, San Francisco and Santa Clara County areas.
