Obama Named the Most Powerful Person in Healthcare for Second Consecutive Year

MODERN HEALTHCARE'S ANNUAL RANKING WELCOMES 18 NEWCOMERS TO THE LIST OF THE 100 MOST POWERFUL PEOPLE IN HEALTHCARE

CHICAGO, Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- President Barack Obama was voted the most powerful person in healthcare by readers of Modern Healthcare, the nation's leading weekly healthcare business news magazine. It's the second consecutive year Obama topped the magazine's annual ranking of the 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare.

"The passage of national healthcare reform legislation in March clinched the top spot for Obama," said Modern Healthcare Editor David Burda. "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will change the delivery of healthcare services in this country forever, and it was Obama unrelenting pursuit of the legislation that made it happen."

The ranking is based on Modern Healthcare's ninth annual reader poll on the movers and shakers of the more than $2.5 trillion-a-year healthcare industry.

Like last year, many members of Obama's healthcare reform team also made this year's list. They include fellow Democrats Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the Dept. of Health and Human Services, and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Among the newcomers to the annual ranking are Mary Kay Henry, the new president of the Service Employees International Union; physician Robert Wachter, a quality expert at the University of California at San Francisco and a national leader in the hospitalist movement; and physician and CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta.

"This year's ranking includes a number of new 'pot stirrers,'" Burda said. "Our readers recognize the importance of people who will continue to push for improvements in healthcare even after the passage of national healthcare reform."

The complete ranking of the 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare for 2010 appears in the Aug. 23 issue of Modern Healthcare. The ranking also appears on the magazine's website, ModernHealthcare.com, at http://www.modernhealthcare.com/100mostpowerful.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...

Consumer-driven contracts are an essential part of a mature microservice testing portfolio enabling independent service deployments. In this presentation we'll provide an overview of the tools, patterns and pain points we've seen when implementing contract testing in large development organizations.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...

Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
