Some of the most influential women in health information technology will be honored tomorrow in Boston for their leadership in helping the healthcare industry achieve the Triple Aim of improving care and patient outcomes while reducing costs.

The day-long event, entitled “Most Powerful Women in Healthcare IT” and hosted by Health Data Management, will recognize award winners in three categories—HIT Leader, Senior Executive and Industry Thought Leader/Influencer—for their achievements and innovation in solving organizational and technical challenges by deploying technology and shaping the regulatory environment.

HDM’s event will also feature an agenda of speakers and sessions to address the pressing issues confronting the industry, as well as provide an opportunity for professional development and networking with visionary leaders.

In addition, keynote speaker Eileen Pollack, author of The Only Woman in the Room: Why Science is Still a Boys Club, will address the social, interpersonal, and institutional barriers standing in the way of women—and minorities—in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields.

An “Innovation in Digital Health” keynote will be delivered by Jennifer Joe, MD, founder of Medstro, the first online professional network designed by physicians for physicians.
