This year is the 12th annual publication of Modern Healthcare's 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.
We announced the call for nominations March 18. The nominating period continued through April 19, and we received nearly 28,000 submissions. The top 300 candidates, based on those nominations, made up the final ballot for this recognition program. Readers then voted for their top five candidates. Voting began May 6 and continued through June 14. More than 238,000 ballots were submitted. Readers' votes counted toward 50% of the outcome; the senior editors at Modern Healthcare accounted for the other 50% to determine the final ranking.
