To come up with its ranking of the "100 most powerful people in healthcare," Modern Healthcare polled its readership during a 17-day period in July. The magazine's editorial staff compiled a list of 160 candidates for this distinction and posted it on the magazine's Web site, modernhealthcare.com, on July 15. Visitors to the site had to vote for 10 candidates, with an opportunity to include up to five write-in candidates. The voting deadline was July 31. Voters also were encouraged to submit comments on their choices.
Visitors to the site cast a total of 2,174 ballots. Because of the high number of write-ins, more than 1,000 individuals received votes, with the final ranking based on the number of votes received. Modern Healthcare employees were not eligible to vote or participate as candidates.
If you have questions or comments on the results or how they were compiled, write to: David Burda, editor, Modern Healthcare, 360 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, Ill., 60601, or call directly at 312-649-5439. Questions or comments can be faxed to 312-280-3183 or sent via e-mail to [email protected] or [email protected]
The magazine and its entire staff extend our appreciation to the readers of Modern Healthcare for making this new recognition program a success.
