Becker's Hospital Review has published its annual list of 40 of the most powerful people in healthcare. This list recognizes leaders who have shaped the healthcare industry with their policy work, clinical research, company leadership and commentary, among other contributions.
Many onlookers have called the current state of the healthcare industry a "perfect storm," where governmental mandates, financial pressures, technological developments and changing patient demographics combine to create confusion and uncertainty. The following 40 people have influenced the changing world of healthcare over the past year by developing and pioneering new models of care, creating ties between competing providers, hospitals and health systems and emphasizing the importance of patient-centered research and care, among other accomplishments. The individuals included range from health system CEOs to presidential candidates to insurance company moguls.
In order to compile this list, the Becker's Hospital Review editorial team analyzed the most important healthcare events, issues and discussions of the past year and thereby determined which individuals had the most impact on the industry. The final list of "powerful people" was analyzed by a panel of healthcare experts.
