John Rayner, Director of HIMSS Analytics, said: "Having witnessed a high number of submissions and outstanding quality of winners during the launch of the European edition in 2016, I am excited to be part of the judging panel for a second time. Extending the nominations to a further two categories also gives us the opportunity to recognise additional innovative projects from our European colleagues. The HIMSS-Elsevier Digital Healthcare Award strives to encourage its participants to showcase best practices in health and care, where the results have ultimately improved patient outcomes."
