Fifth Annual Competition Awards $100,000 to Winner and $25,000 to Finalists
Hearst Health, a division of Hearst, and the Jefferson College of Population Health, part of Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University), today announced that the call for submissions is now open for the 2020 Hearst Health Prize. The annual award recognizes outstanding achievement of organizations managing or improving population health in the United States. The winner will be awarded $100,000 and up to two finalists will each be awarded $25,000.
“Over the past five years, the Hearst Health Prize has become a showcase for population health programs across the nation to submit their evidence-based results and improved patient outcomes,” said Hearst Health President Gregory Dorn, MD, MPH. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to highlight more organizations committed to improving population health again this year. We are continually impressed by the breadth of programs that are transforming the way healthcare is delivered in the United States.”
The Hearst Health Prize evaluates implemented projects that demonstrate improved population health outcomes; it is not a grant program. The deadline for submissions is August 9, 2019. Up to three finalists will be named in January 2020, and the winner will be announced on March 31, 2020 at the 20th annual Population Health Colloquium in Philadelphia.

“We are honored to provide a national program for organizations to share their best practices for improving population health. We encourage all organizations committed to this mission to apply for this year’s award and to share the results of their programs with us,” said David B. Nash, MD, MBA, dean of the Jefferson College of Population Health. “Through the Hearst Health Prize, we identify leading innovators that have made an impact in their communities and provide them the opportunity to positively impact more people with funding and exposure from this award.”
