Adler-Milstein named to list of influential women in health IT

Julia Adler-Milstein, assistant professor in the School of Information and the School of Public Health, has been named as one of FierceHealthIT’s 10 Influential Women in Health IT in 2014.

For the third straight year, the online trade publication asked readers to nominate who they thought were the most influential women in the health IT field. The list includes government officials, clinicians, educators, and researchers who have played a major role in the evolution of health IT both in the United States and around the world.

Adler-Milstein was recognized for her work as a key member of the research teams on a pair of August studies that found both Meaningful Use Stage 2 and health information exchange implementation to be lagging. 

The article also acknowledged her research from early 2014 that found while hospitals tend to use a common sequence when adopting electronic health records functions, Meaningful Use is changing that sequence, which could impact patient care.

Adler-Milstein also is serving as the guest editor of this month’s issue of the American Journal of Managed Care’s health IT edition.

FierceHealthIT serves as a leading source of healthcare IT news for professionals in the health IT field, and maintains a special focus on electronic health record adoption, telemedicine, HIPAA compliance and other critical areas. 

“10 Influential Women in Health IT in 2014” can be found on the FierceHealthIT website, but requires readers to provide an email address to register for the publication’s newsletter in order to access the article.
