The annual Monroe E. Trout Premier Cares Award honors community agencies, programs and health organizations that support those excluded from, or underserved by, the mainstream health delivery system. To be considered for the award, a program must be a stand-alone entity that operates independently from a hospital or healthcare system. Application based, the winning program receives a cash prize of $100,000 at Premier’s Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition.
For consideration, a program must successfully address a well-defined, unmet need and will be additionally judged on:
- Innovation and creativity
- Ease of replicability
- Impact of award on program
- Future vision
