Members of the Awards Committee will review submissions for the three award categories and generate a ballot. OSEHRA dues-paying members will then select which nominees on the ballot merit recognition for their impactful contributions to the Open Source Health IT Community. Winners will be announced at the 2018 OSEHRA Summit, to be held July 18 – 20, 2018 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center.
