"As the association for the specialty health industry, we felt it was important to recognize a company that has shown tremendous innovation and quality in the programs that they use to educate providers and consumers on healthcare," said Julian Roberts, executive director of NASHO. Roberts added, "Educating both groups on procedures, managing benefits or navigating the system is key to keeping the specialty health system running smoothly and efficiently."

Educational activities will be reviewed and the selection committee will be looking for innovations of software, web-based activities, or use of devices or other program to provide interactive education to either consumers or providers or both groups - if applicable. Any specialty health organization that is defined as a payer, health plan or network that facilitates and manages care for a defined health care spectrum is eligible to apply. Those organizations include behavioral health, chiropractic, complementary care, dental, pharmacy benefit management, physical therapy, radiology, vision and other ancillary services.

Both members and non-members of NASHO are eligible to apply for the award. Applications can be found at http://www.nasho.org/IndustryInnovation. Deadline to submit is June 16, 2008. The winner of the award will be honored at The NASHO 6th Annual Leadership Summit October 21-22, 2008 at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.
