Proposal Evaluation Criteria
Speaking Proposals will be evaluated along the following criteria by members of our Program Planning Advisory Board.
● Will the topic/data included in the proposal be appropriate/timely (in the context of context of current and pending legislation, regulations and technology) at the conference dates (April 27-28, 2020)?
● Does the proposal include valuable/practical insights relevant to the topic (will there be sufficient education/data presented around states implementing technology and lessons learned)?
● Are end users (Medicaid, HIE, Payer, Federal etc) presenters included and taking a prominent role in the presentation? (end users should lead presentations, vendor representation should be in the background)
● Are these insights supported by guidelines or models that can be used by attendees to better manage projects and/or implementations?
● Multiple Perspectives. Does the proposal include multiple/diverse perspectives on the topic?
● Originality. Has the material been presented elsewhere where attendees may have been present? The topic is likely to be covered in a few venues prior to April.
● Experience. Do proposed speakers have sufficient experience to support the topic?
● Product/vendor commercials are avoided?
*Although there is no official word count limit, 3-400 words is optimal submission length for submitted speaking proposals.
**We do request that speaking proposal submitters undertake an initial availability check for proposed presenters included in the speaking proposal before submission to ensure the proposed topic, objective & perspectives of the session are fulfilled.
***Healthcare IT Connect reserves the right to cancel a session should the session topic, presenters (end user representation) or format included in the speaking proposal evolve beyond the scope of the originally submitted proposal.
