Ask The Expert with Mark S. Gothberg

Mark-GothbergWinners of the 2013 eHealthcare Leader­ship Awards, the com­petition’s 14th year, were recognized in November in New Orleans during a pres­entation at a healthcare Internet con­ference sponsored by Atlanta-based Greystone.Net. The November issue of eHealthcare Strategy & Trends listed the winners.

Last month’s “Ask the Expert” column discussed what digital pro­fessionals need to be working on in 2014 and beyond in the context of six award categories. This month’s column covers the remaining eight award categories.
