Nominating and Judging Process

Best Overall Pharmaceutical and Consumer Product Manufacturers

The DIANA Best Overall Manufacturer Award is a distributor-driven nomination process. HDA distributor members are asked to nominate their top five manufacturer partners in each of the categories.

Each award category will have a second and first merit finalist.

The five categories are:

  • Best Overall Branded Pharmaceutical Product Manufacturer With Less Than $300 Million in Sales to Healthcare Distributors;
  • Best Overall Branded Pharmaceutical Product Manufacturer With More Than $300 Million in Sales to Healthcare Distributors;
  • Best Overall Consumer Product Manufacturer;
  • Best Overall Generic Product Manufacturer With Less Than $100 Million in Sales to Healthcare Distributors; and,
  • Best Overall Generic Product Manufacturer With More Than $100 Million in Sales to Healthcare Distributors.

  • Judging Process

    Each nomination from HDA distributor members includes an overall score. HDA will tabulate the nominations and scores submitted by the distributor members to compile a list of finalists for each category. Finalists will be selected from those companies that receive the most nominations and the highest scores. HDA will then release the list of finalists to its distributor members, who are asked to rank the finalists in each judging category. HDA will compile the final votes and present the awards on Monday, June 11 at its annual Business and Leadership Conference in Colorado Springs, Colo.

  • Rx Support Systems, Supplies and Service Products.
