I'm in Boston attending the Connected Health Symposium. Here, we're hearing about a number of different innovations that are revolutionizing the world of health care. I've seen a number of physician leaders and executives who have demonstrated leadership within various organizations and who are influencing the evolving world of health IT. Some of these physicians are working in industry while others are in academia. Some continue to see patients while others are fully engaged in business, administration, or medical management.
