Innovations and Operations Excellence


Recognizing clients who demonstrate an ongoing commitment to making the most of their investment in Cognizant’s advanced digital technologies.


Clients will be recognized at the 2021 virtual Cognizant Healthcare Conference.

When clients employ our digital solutions and resources to build new best practices, or when they discover new ways to use our systems to address changing business models, together we change healthcare for the better. We’re proud to work in partnership with all our clients to deliver impressive, meaningful results. Each year, finalists are recognized and winners are announced at the annual Cognizant Healthcare Conference. These are clients who have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to making the most of their technology investments and have highlighted the details behind their success. We recognize the past year has been anything but “business as usual” and we are encouraged to learn of the innovative responses our clients have demonstrated.

The Healthcare Excellence Awards recognize those organizations that, through their unique implementation and integration of our solutions, have achieved innovation and excellence in one or more of the following areas:

  • Creating programs and processes to improve cost and quality of care
  • Implementing and administering new or unique plan designs
  • Extending solutions to provide additional benefits/services
  • Improving administrative efficiency
  • Reacting to the needs of your customers/members in response to the pandemic
  • Implementing or supporting value-based care
  • Increasing the focus on quality assurance
  • Meeting the demands of industry mandates such as interoperability

This is the year for untold, inspiring stories of innovation and the achievement of exceptional results. Clients interested in telling their story could be accepting one of the coveted Healthcare Excellence Awards at this year’s virtual Cognizant Healthcare Conference.
