PPR Founder Nominated again for 100 Most Influential

For the 5th year in a row, PPR founder and chair, Deborah C. Peel, MD, has been nominated to be on Modern Healthcare’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.  More than 414,000 nominations were received from April 4 through May 6, and the ballot of 300 candidates is based on those nominations.

Dr. Peel debuted on this prestigious list in 2007 as the 4th most powerful person in healthcare. They changed the list from the “most powerful” to “the most influential,” which suits our situation even better. Patient Privacy Rights is not the “Most Powerful” in the healthcare industry, however we are extremely influential. Over the past few years we have had a huge impact on health care, health IT, and your health privacy. We not only got new ground breaking privacy protections into the stimulus bill, but are still working today to follow up with those regulations and ensure they are implemented properly. Dr. Peel has traveled world wide to discuss the health care situation here in the United States, and how important privacy is. In the last year she has testified before the Health IT Policy Committee as well as the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.

We are working every day to influence lawmakers, health IT vendors and industry, insurers, doctors, patients, and more to hold privacy as a priority. Help us make it clear to those deciding your future, that in order to move ahead we must put privacy at the front of the line! Vote for Deborah Peel.
