Healthcare Internet Hall of Fame: Honoring and Preserving the Healthcare Digital Industry Visionaries
“Of all the inventions of humans, the computer is going to rank near or at the top as history unfolds and we look back. It is the most awesome tool that we have ever invented. I feel incredibly lucky to be at exactly the right place in Silicon Valley, at exactly the right time, historically, where this invention has taken form.” – Steve Jobs
There is no doubt our generation has seen, and continues to see, remarkable creations in the digital space. The digital world has transformed--and continues to transform--the way we live our lives.
Many of us can relate to Steve Jobs’ way of thinking when considering our own organizations’ colleagues and leaders who have laid the road before us as they revolutionized the digital space within the healthcare industry.
John A. Eudes, founder of Greystone.Net and the Healthcare Internet Conference, was one of these visionaries. John influenced many within the industry to start a revolution of sorts in their own organization to help shape the vision of where the industry was going and how digital was going to play a role within the healthcare industry.
John also saw the need of recognizing and honoring those who not only began the work but also continued to carry the torch for others to ensure that we are continuously pushing the boundaries. John had a vision that one day we could recognize these revolutionaries and visionaries formally. In 2012, John’s vision came to fruition when the first ceremony was held to induct the first class of the Healthcare Internet Hall of Fame.
Today the Hall of Fame has become known as HIHOF. Each year during the Healthcare Internet Conference, providers, individuals and organizations providing services and tools to the healthcare digital industry are honored for their innovative contributions to the industry.
The HIHOF Board of Judges evaluates nominations each year, looking for inductees that meet the requirements necessary to be a member of this elite club. Those inducted into HIHOF not only are respected by colleagues throughout the industry, they also have:
- Made numerous, lasting and significant contributions to the healthcare Internet field at a local, state or national level.
- Assumed a leadership position in the healthcare industry beyond just the organization in which they are/were employed.
- Demonstrated a willingness to share their expertise with others in the industry.
- Served as a role model or mentor to others in the healthcare Internet industry.
- Shown the ability or influence to effect change in the industry.
- Been engaged in the field of healthcare internet for at least 5 years.
To continue honoring those in our industry for their accomplishments, nominations are required for the Healthcare Internet Hall of Fame. If you have been looking for a way to recognize an individual, provider organization and/or product or service for their outstanding work and contributions to the digital healthcare space, please visit the HIHOF website to submit your nomination.
HIHOF nominations will be accepted throughout the month of July. The Class of 2018 will be inducted during the 22nd Annual Healthcare Internet Conference in Scottsdale, AZ on Tuesday, November 6th.
