2021 Sharp Index awards

Awards for excellence in physician well-being are a way to celebrate the good news. Projects that have helped, individuals that have made a difference, and systems that take the health of their physicians seriously should be celebrated. When we recognize excellence in physician health, healthcare systems will naturally strive for excellence. We want to recognize excellence in work towards that mission, including the following categories:

  • Best Health Tech Company

  • Innovator of the year 2021

  • Physician Wellbeing Leader 2021

  • Mental Health Advocate 2021

  • Best Health System Wellness Program

  • Best Data Project or Research about Physician Burnout

  • Best Press/writing/blog about Physician Mental Health 2021

  • Nurse Leader 2021

  • Covid19 Burnout Prevention 2021

  • Health Equity Leader 2021


Sharp Index also awards a scholarship to a physician and non-physician doing significant work in this area. A non-physician winner might be a nurse leader, a suicide loss survivor, or a media member who is dedicated to making a difference for the health of our health care system. The first winner of the Sharp Index Scholarship was Chad Richards. You can find his story here.


This scholarship is a growing effort sponsored by health tech companies dedicated to technology that is a positive contribution to physician lives.
