Rules and Regulations

1. Eligibility

All hospitals located in Asia Pacific region can participate. Small and big hospitals have equal chances of winning because the awards are for the success of projects, programs or services that were implemented during the award period and not for overall excellence of the hospital. In this sense public and private hospitals, small and large ones too, have equal chances of winning.

Entries must be for projects, programs, or services that were implemented or significantly enhanced from January 2016 to June 2017. In this sense, the awards are for the introduction of new projects, or for the improvements in 2016/2017 of existing programs and systems. In general, the judges favor new projects than enhancements.

In all cases, there should be objective, quantifiable, and verifiable measurements as to the effectiveness of the project.

Participating hospitals must be from Asia Pacific. Hospitals of non-Asian origin are also eligible as long as the entry is from and for their Hospital in Asia Pacific.
