Vendors and service providers: Get ready to submit your company's information for the HCI 100 -- a listing of the top 100 companies providing healthcare IT products and services by revenue. This year, our survey form will be live on our Web site from March 10-24. To provide more value to the industry, this year's survey will be more specific, asking questions that really get to the heart of how muchhealthcare IT revenue, not overall revenue, companies are earning. So be prepared to review it on March 10. After HCI tallies the data, we'll profile a number of the top companies in terms of those that have experienced the largest percentage increase in revenue, year over year, including those that have grown through acquisition. Growth is growth, and a company gobbling up others is an ambitious one that needs to be watched. All profiles will be done with an eye to 'What does this mean to our readers -- the customers of these companies?' Nothing frightens CIOs more than when a key vendor of theirs is on a buying spree, or, worse, snapped up. Also, extreme organic growth can mean lower levels of service to existing and new clients, especially if a company is trying to keep costs as low as they were before it took on 20 new hospitals. In addition to our profiles, we'll feature our regular feature from HCI Editorial Board Member Ben Rooks of William Blair, who will review the past year's action on the vendor M&A front. And, new for this year's package will be an article detailing the 'Missing Suspects.' Since the HCI 100 is voluntary, some notables have been ignored when they chose not to participate. This year, we'll bring them from the shadows into the sunshine and try to estimate where they would have placed in the survey. In all, the HCI 100 will be a tremendous tool to the industry throughout the year. For more informaiton on our schedule for this project, contact HCI Managing Editor
Stacey Kramer. And, as always, contact me with any ideas, trends or suggestions. Best
