10 Influential HIT Heroes

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.
