Shared Patient eXperience aims to bring together international organizations, healthcare institutions and start-ups that want to improve and share their experience with patients.

Each year we expand the coverage of the association, and the 3rd edition of the Awards will be held at the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, in Spain.

For this third edition, we are expanding the categories of health institutions that can participate: hospitals, non-hospital healthcare institutions and start-ups. A total of €15,000 in cash prizes will be divided equally among the winners in each category.

The call for projects will be open until 22nd February. The voting period will be activated during April through this website.

The ceremony will be held on June 9 at the Hospital Clínic in Barcelona with the possibility to follow it online via zoom.
