The Cleveland Clinic's employee health promotion website was one of eight projects to win HHS' Healthy Living Innovation Awards. Cleveland Clinic employees monitor walking, exercise and weight loss online, and competing teams can track their progress on the website, according to a description of the winning program on the Ohio health system's website.

Experts and the public evaluated and voted on Healthy Living Innovation Award nominees based on the programs' creativity and reported outcomes and the ability to replicate the programs in other locations to promote healthy weight, physical activity and nutrition, among other criteria, according to an HHS news release announcing the winners.
