What is the innovation hub awards process?

Each year, AMCHP’s Innovation Hub Awards recognize exceptional programs in the MCH Innovations Database that have made a difference in maternal and child health. Awards are presented at our annual conference and winners are selected by AMCHP staff. All practices that submit and are accepted to the database are eligible for AMCHP’s annual Innovation Hub Awards. Awards include:

  • Best Practice Award: Awarded to the highest scoring practice out of the practices received that year.
  • Stakeholder Empowerment and Partnership Award: Awarded to the practice which demonstrates the greatest contribution to meaningful stakeholder empowerment and partnership.
  • Advancing Health Equity Award: Awarded to the practice which demonstrates the strongest impact of meaningfully advancing racial and health equity.
  • Practice Development Award: Awarded to the practice which has achieved substantial gains in moving up the Innovation Hub practice continuum.
