Today we announced that Kinvey will be the Technology and Innovation Track sponsor at the Most Powerful Women in Healthcare IT recognition event on May 17th at the Sheraton Boston Hotel. The conference will honor the award winners and will offer professional development, mentoring, and networking time for women in the industry.  

This is the second annual event hosted by SourceMedia, publishers of HealthData Management. The program recognizes the extraordinary contributions of women in the field of health information technology, including:

  • Health Information Technology Leaders (CIO, CMIO, CSO, VP of IT)
  • Industry Thought Leaders/Influencers (such as regulators, provider CEOs, consultants, academicians, researchers, foundation and elected officials)
  • Technology Vendor Executives

Honorees are being recognized for their efforts in driving technology innovation, overcoming organizational and technology barriers, deploying cutting-edge technology, shaping IT regulation and policy, and implementing healthcare technology that dramatically increased patient safety and health organization efficiency. Special attention was given to those candidates who have mentored female staff or peers and elevated the status of women in the profession.
