“One of the exciting things about this year’s competition was that we added the new Women’s Health category, and received some solid entries for that segment, as well,” said David Kopf, publisher and executive editor of HME Business. “In addition to that, we saw robust competition in a number of categories. That was especially true in the Retail, Sleep Therapy Systems and Sleep Resupply Items categories.”

Kopf also thanked the judges of this year’s edition of The New Product Award. All entries are scored by a blind panel of judges from the HME provider community.

“I say it each year, but we couldn’t do this award program without the judges,” he said. “We saw a large number of entries this year, and their hard work was indispensable. It’s a big service to their fellow providers.”

Information about the 2020 HME Business New Product Award will be available at in the summer of 2020.
