As we wind down an exciting year in healthcare IT, and look forward to an even more dynamic one, I’d like to take a moment to thank all the people who make HCI the superior information product it is today.
To start, no one will argue that we have an amazingly talented and passionate staff. Stacey Kramer, our managing editor, works tirelessly behind the scenes to bring you clean and crisp magazine pages. Kate Gamble, recently promoted to associate managing editor is, without a doubt, one of the most outstanding professional journalists I have come across. Senior Editor Daphne Lawrence was born to “tell it like it is,” cutting through the spin and getting to the heart of the matter. Senior Contributing Editor Mark Hagland knows more about healthcare IT than most CIOs, having devoted over 20 years to following this industry. And Contributing Editor David Raths is an expert in HIE and state-level policy issues.
It has been a true privilege to work with these dedicated and talented people.
But beyond our formal staff, HCI has engaged a talented team of bloggers who round out our content offering with their commentary and analysis. It all started in late 2007 with one blog and a hunch that readers were ready for something beyond traditional news and articles. Luckily, Vince Ciotti was intrigued enough by the idea to sign on. More than two years and 20 bloggers later, the results have been amazing.
