Modern Healthcare has a list of "50 Most Influential Physician Executives - 2013"
The honorees were chosen by readers and the senior editors of Modern Healthcare and Modern Physician for their leadership in the varied sectors of the industry, whether provider organizations, government agencies, associations, insurers or supplier companies. This year's program is sponsored by Cejka Executive Search.
You'll see many familiar names like John Kitzhaber, Eric Topol, Farzad Mostashari, Regina Benjamin, Gary Gottlieb, Atul Gawande, Reed Tuckson, Margaret Hamburg, Elliott Fisher, and many others.
I think it would be very interesting to put all these names on a map. We would probably see a heavy representation from the East Coast.
