On November 22, 2016, the World Technology Network announced Bioinformatix' Rx&You as one of six global finalists for its 2016 World Technology Award in health and medicine. Over 1,000 companies were nominated in 2016. Other 2016 organizational finalists included Google, SpaceX, and Oculus.
The membership of the World Technology Network is composed of over 1000 scientists, entrepreneurs, financiers, journalists, academics, policymakers, etc., and over 200 organizations/companies, spread out over 60 countries. With the exception of a small number of founding members, they are mostly short-listed Nominees and/or Winners for the World Technology Awards, held annually since 2000. Fellows are those who have been short-listed nominees and/or Winners of the Awards in the individual award categories and are, barring unusual circumstances, elected as WTN Fellows for life. WTN Corporate Members are short-listed nominees or winners of the Awards in the corporate award categories and automatically become members of WTN for one year (re-evaluated on an annual basis for their overall contribution to the network).
Membership can only occur through the annual Awards process, in which individuals and companies are selected via the judgment of the the current WTN Fellows. Prior notable awardees include Proteus Digital Health and the Weizmann Institute of Science.
