As always, there are no hard and fast restrictions on which people or companies can be nominated for these awards. While these awards exist to honor accomplishment related to voice tech and conversational AI, in this day and age, contributions to broader healthcare are just as important because they are what make a focus on voice and AI possible - thus, we have our Outstanding Achievement Awards which are more general in nature. Ultimately, it is up to the nominating party to make a compelling case for why a nominee should be considered for a specific award, whether directly related to voice tech and AI or not.
