AHIMA CEO Nominated for Inclusion on Modern Healthcare’s ‘100 Most Influential People in Healthcare’
AHIMA CEO Lynne Thomas Gordon has been nominated as one of Modern Healthcare’s “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare” for 2014, alongside top federal health officials, researchers, and other industry leaders.
Every year, the healthcare trade magazine honors 100 individuals “who are deemed by their peers and an expert panel to be the most influential individuals in the industry, in terms of leadership and impact with rankings published in our annual list.” Modern Healthcare readers can vote for up to five nominees until voting concludes on June 13.
“I am delighted to be nominated again this year as one of Modern Healthcare’s ‘100 Most Influential People,’” Gordon told the Journal. “The list of nominees—as always—is very impressive and it is an honor to be among them and representing AHIMA’s impact on the industry.”
Other notable nominees include federal health officials and nominees, such as Sylvia Matthews Burwell, the nominee for Health and Human Services Secretary, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Marilyn Tavenner, President Barack Obama, as well as provider and association CEOs. The nominees also encompassed an increasing number of health IT leaders.
“This year, health information management has been in the spotlight due in large part to the ICD-10 delay, in which AHIMA played a key role in advocating for the healthcare quality improvements that follow better documentation,” Gordon said.
