How do the judges select the Health Insurance awards winners?

The Health Insurance Awards are independently judged. Once entries have been received and processed they will be distributed to the judges.

In August the judges will convene to discuss all the entries and will use the published criteria to individually discuss each entry. The judging panel comprises independent, senior industry experts, chosen for their knowledge, objectivity and credibility. Judges evaluate all categories relevant to their specialist knowledge, expertise and experience, ensuring a considered, educated response to your submission.

The chair of the judging panel reserves the right to cast any deciding vote, should the need arise. The judges’ decision is final. All companies/individuals short listed will be notified directly by Health Insurance Daily by the beginning of September. Short listed companies/individuals will also be announced on healthinsurancedaily.com

Confidentiality

Entrants must make sure that client case studies comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Act. This means that intermediaries should either obtain clients’ permission to supply data or ensure that clients cannot be identified.

As the awards organiser, Informa recognises and respects the sensitive nature of the information submitted in the entries. We ensure that this extends to our Judging Panel and as such require each judge to sign a confidentiality agreement before they are appointed. Entries are not disclosed or discussed outside of the judging process. Where an entry is shortlisted, extracts from the entry summary only may be sourced for inclusion in the awards ceremony and any subsequent editorial coverage. Please ensure your entry summary contains no confidential or sensitive information. All entries and supporting material will be destroyed after the awards presentations.

The Judging Panel for each award will be selected to avoid any conflict of interest.
