In recent years, annual events like #HIT99 and #HIT100 have highlighted many of these bright and passionate healthcare professionals bringing them to the spotlight in social media. However, in general terms the HIT profession isn't celebrated nearly as often as many other healthcare careers.
When Health IT (HIT) professionals do their jobs well, many people don't know they exist. Because of this, HIT has a growing number of rockstars who just don't get the attention they deserve. On this 10th anniversary of National Health IT week, we want to honor some of those influential HIT Heroes.
Mandi is an HIT Hero because she is a passionate #HealthData geek. She is friendly, helpful, and smart. You will frequently find her participating in HIT tweetchats. Connect with Mandi.
Colin is a proven thought in Health IT marketing and co-founder of #hcldr. He is a frequent collaborator online and at live events like HIMSS.
Whenever you find a list of HIT influencers, Linda's probably on it. She was recently listed as one of the Top 100 influencers in Health IT. Linda was a #HIMSS15 social media ambassador.
I think it would be impossible to honor HIT heroes without honor the person who started #HIT100. Michael is passionate about interoperability and mobility of healthcare data.
