The 2018 Healthcare Informatics 100 has been released online, but for a more in-depth analysis on what the list means in the realm of the health IT marketplace, few would be better at providing that insight than Ben Rooks and Michelle Mattson-Hamilton, both senior executives at ST Advisors, a strategic and financial advisory firm focused on healthcare IT.

Indeed, Rooks and Mattson-Hamilton are vital to the creation of the annual Healthcare Informatics 100 list, as they help provide integral revenue information that enables the list to be completed. On this latest Healthcare Informatics podcast, the ST Advisors executives discuss the true impact of the rankings, what trends they uncovered in their research, and how the healthcare and healthcare IT marketplace continues to change.

What’s more, on this episode, Rooks and Mattson-Hamilton also weigh in on the recent news that athenahealth president and CEO Jonathan Bush will be stepping down as the company considers “strategic alternatives” following a takeover offer from activist firm Elliott Management. In Rooks’ opinion, Bush was forced out in a way that “was woefully inappropriate.”

What does Rooks mean by this? Take a listen to this latest Healthcare Informatics podcast, which runs about 30 minutes in length, and keep in mind, you can listen to all Healthcare Informatics podcasts right here.
