Attending the Gala: Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Join us for a virtual celebration the evening of December 1st, 2020 as we recognize and honor the achievements of those transforming healthcare through groundbreaking leadership and innovation.

Hosted by NYeC’s Board of Directors, the Gala & Awards support our work to further improve healthcare delivery and patient outcomes in New York State through health information exchange.

In consideration of continued social distancing guidelines, this year’s awards program & ceremony will be held virtually from 7:00 – 8:00 PM.

However, our Gala & Awards will not be the “typical” virtual event. Our Gala will be a dynamic and festive experience that maximizes attendee engagement and interaction through a Virtual Tables event platform. With the Virtual Tables platform, attendees and sponsors will join their colleagues and peers where they can socialize at private virtual tables and view our awards program & ceremony – all from the convenience of their homes.

When: Tuesday, December 1, 2020 7:00 – 8:00 PM

Where: Virtual Event

This year’s Gala will also feature a special tribute to express our gratitude for the heroic and tireless efforts of the frontline healthcare professionals who continue to care for patients throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

We hope you will join us in December to celebrate our honorees and support NYeC’s mission to improve healthcare by collaboratively leading, connecting, and integrating health information exchange across the state.

Please email awards@nyehealth.org with any questions.
