Wellsphere's mission is to help people live healthier, happier lives, by connecting them with expert knowledge and personal support. The Health Impact Award was created in part to help bridge the gap between the health organizations that are doing phenomenal work in their respective fields and communities, and the people all across the country whom they're seeking to serve. "We noticed in our research that there are thousands and thousands of people within these organizations who dedicate their lives to helping others, yet gain little recognition and few rewards for their incredible efforts. Our goals in creating the Health Impact Award were to connect the millions of people who visit Wellsphere with the great knowledge and support that these organizations offer, give these hardworking individuals the credit they deserve, and help them fulfill their missions by making their efforts more widely known," said Wellsphere CEO Ron Gutman. The Health Impact Award selection committee, led by Wellsphere's Chief Medical Information Officer Dr. Geoff Rutledge, conducted a comprehensive analysis of the nation's health institutions, nonprofit and government agencies, and selected those groups who are making the most significant impact in their fields. The selection criteria included:

  •     Providing support for patients (emotional and physical)
  •     Conducting or supporting basic and applied research
  •     Improving accessibility and affordability of care
  •     Raising awareness of significant health risks
  •     Promoting prevention and proactive care
  •     Providing and supporting education (patients and caregivers)
  •     Driving and inspiring innovation
