PatientPoint is most honored company for fifth consecutive year

CINCINNATI — With more than 50 entries recognized, PatientPoint, the trusted leader in patient education and engagement at the point of care, has earned the distinction of the most awarded organization in the National Health Information Awards (NHIA) program for the fifth year in a row.

NHIA recognizes organizations that create high-quality, effective educational materials that are easy-to-understand, credible and actionable for patients and healthcare providers.

This year's award-winning PatientPoint educational content includes customized articles, brochures and videos available in physician offices and hospitals. With a total of 52 NHIA awards—the most for any company or publication—PatientPoint maintains its unquestioned leadership in health education at the point of care.

"While we don't create these materials to win awards, the recognition from NHIA is a validation that our education is making a difference for patients and physicians at the point of care," said Kate Merz, VP content and creative, PatientPoint. "These awards act as a seal of quality to help healthcare providers identify which content to offer their patients amid a host of possible choices and legitimatize our claim that we indeed create content that is both actionable and aspirational for the patient—a mission we take seriously."

PatientPoint received seven Silver Awards, 19 Bronze Awards and 26 Merit Awards (full listing can be found below). This year, entries were submitted by a wide variety of leading organizations in the consumer health field, including the American Heart Association, Mayo Clinic, March of Dimes and Parents magazine. Over the past 12 years, PatientPoint has been recognized by the NHIA with a total of 431 awards.

The NHIA program—the most comprehensive competition of its kind—is organized by Health Information Resource CenterSM, a national clearinghouse for consumer health information programs and materials, and sets the standard for the industry‚Äôs educational collateral.
