Organizations experience extraordinary success in achieving their patient safety goals due to the cooperation of executive leadership and collaboration at all levels. Over the past several years, organizational collaboration between the C-suite and IPs and/or the IPC department has increased. As healthcare organizations focus their financial and human resources to eliminate HAIs, collaboration and innovation among administrators and executives become essential. APIC recognizes the pivotal role these individuals play in establishing an organizational culture that enables and supports IPC efforts in their facility. 

Successful organizations celebrate positive contributions and results. APIC’s Healthcare Administrator Award recognizes and celebrates the efforts of administrators and/or physicians who champion IPC efforts within their organization.
