NAHC President Val J. Halamandaris Named to Modern Healthcare’s 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare
Modern Healthcare has released its twelfth annual ranking of the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare. Among the honorees was NAHC President Val J. Halamandaris, who made the prestigious list for the fifth time since its inception. The award honors individuals in healthcare 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.
Modern Healthcare named Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, as the most influential person in healthcare. The list includes individuals from throughout the entire spectrum of healthcare from providers to insurers, policy analysts to lawmakers.
Those on the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare list were chosen through a combination of editorial and reader input. Modern Healthcare announced the call for nominations on March 18, 2013. The nominating period continued through April 19, and nearly 28,000 submissions were received. The top 300 candidates, based on those nominations, made up the final ballot for the ranked list. 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.
