The top 300 candidates based on those nominations made up the final ballot for this recognition program—our 10th annual—previously known as the 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare. This year, readers could cast a ballot and vote for five candidates who they believed are the most influential in the industry, representing 50% of the final outcome. Senior editors of Modern Healthcare determined the other 50%.

Balloting began May 23 and continued until June 24. This year, readers submitted 445,400 ballots for a total of more than 2.2 million votes.
