Takeaways from Modern Healthcare’s 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare
// By Jane Weber Brubaker //
Each year, Modern Healthcare honors 100 influential healthcare leaders, voted to the list by their peers and senior editors of the publication. What are these leaders doing to help the industry move forward? What is the impact of their leadership initiatives on their own organizations and on the industry as a whole?
Beyond checking to see who you know — or getting the word out in a press release if you’re one of those fortunate enough to be honored — it’s a fascinating list. It says so much about our industry, who’s rising to the top, and why.
One of the things that caught our attention immediately was that “disruptors” dominate the very top of the pyramid. Walmart. CVS Health. Amazon. Only two of the top 10 influencers are leaders of traditional health systems. Things are changing.
So we made an attempt to sort out all 100 influencers into different views and boil down the information to see what kind of a story it would tell.
