The health care industry puts a lot of emphasis on "seasoning"-physicians don't get to practice on their own until they've gone through years of apprenticeship, so to speak, and likewise with other caregivers, who undergo their own extensive training and education programs. Health I.T. departments are little different, since the technology they are deploying and managing is used in the life-and-death environment of clinical care.

But there's always a few young bloods who are taking on more responsibilities, and making more enterprise-level decisions, than their peers.

The recipients of Health Data Management's first "Health I.T. Young Bloods" program--profiled on the following pages--have done just that. Among them are physicians, senior executives and front-line I.T. staff. The program recognizes the technology accomplishments of clinicians, administrators and I.T. staff in the health care industry. Staff members age 35 years or younger who work for health care delivery systems, physician group practices, health plans, government or regulatory agencies, member associations and data exchanges were eligible.
