The UNIVANTS of Healthcare Excellence Award recognizes those who step up as Unifiers to drive collaboration and persevere as a cross-disciplinary team, working together to achieve common goals. By pushing beyond convention, these teams have unified across silos, transformed healthcare delivery, and ultimately, patients’ lives.
What makes the award even more meaningful is that it honors Unifiers who are also Avant-Garde in their approach to solving problems—using laboratory intelligence to achieve measurably better outcomes. It is this combination that makes the UNIVANTS of Healthcare Excellence Award unlike any other.
