The Healthcare Internet Hall of Fame was established in 2011 to honor men, women and organizations that have made outstanding, long-lasting contributions to the healthcare Internet industry. The organization’s purpose, while honoring innovation, is to ensure that the “history” of the industry is preserved for future generations new to the healthcare industry.
Although initially organized by Greystone.Net, the Hall of Fame is an independent organization whose annual inductees are selected by an independent Board of Judges. Inductions are made at the Healthcare Internet Hall of Fame luncheon during the annual Healthcare Internet Conference.
The 2011 inductees were John Eudes, co-founder of Greystone.Net, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Sharp Healthcare, Epic, Estrada CMS and WebMD. Click here to read more about their accomplishments.
