H.P.I. Healthcare Awards 2018 will recognise the most enterprising healthcare providers across two categories:

  • Best Hospital for Innovative Technology Intervention 

Hospitals are not generally known to imbibe innovative technology interventions in improving its efficiency of service delivery, be it bedside clinical care or user comfort when they traverse the hospital across various departments. Many hospitals have tried to use IT to their advantage which has helped them to cut process cycle time, transmit information faster, and connect with their patients better. On the other hand some have improved the way they transport material across the building or design their building engineering in a manner that improves patient experience.

HPI has decided to institute a new category of award to recognize such enterprising healthcare providers and to promote innovation.

  • Best  façade design for healthcare buildings

The building envelope remains one of the most important exterior elements for building functionality. While the façade is an elegant component that helps to define the unique architectural aesthetics of the building, it also has the critical role related to energy performance and interior function of a building.

The award will recognize a hospital which fulfils the following parameters:

  • Low cost design

  • Using of innovative materials

  • Façade breathing

  • Performance and life of façade

  • Better aesthetic values which are timeless



  • The three day summit’s theme this year is “Delivering the future of healthcare delivery: smart and sustainable”. The focus is to analyse what will transform and disrupt the delivery of healthcare services in the coming years.

  • Technology Platform: The technology pavilion at our upcoming H.P.I. Exhibition will showcase innovative healthcare companies along with healthcare IT leaders who will share insights on how technology integration is reshaping the landscape of healthcare delivery in India. 

  •  The Exhibition at HPI is India's largest platform for buyers and sellers of healthcare services and solutions. It’s a chance to showcase your range of services & products to a diverse set of audience and discuss how can you deliver healthcare in the most efficient and cost effective way.
