Nom­i­na­tions for the sev­enth an­nual rank­ing of the 50 Most In­flu­en­tial Physi­cian Ex­ec­u­tives in Health­care (for­merly the 50 Most Pow­er­ful Physi­cian Ex­ec­u­tives in Health­care) are now be­ing ac­cepted. Mod­ern Health­care and sis­ter pub­li­ca­tion Mod­ern Physi­cian co-spon­sor this an­nual recog­ni­tion pro­gram.

We’re chang­ing the name of the pro­gram to bet­ter re­flect the skills needed to im­prove the health­care de­liv­ery sys­tem in the post-health­care re­form era. It took power to make re­form hap­pen; now, it will take in­flu­ence to make re­form work.

To sub­mit a nom­i­na­tion, visit ModernHealth­care.com or ModernPhysi­cian.com. Through Dec. 31, read­ers can nom­i­nate as many physi­cians as they want, as well as make mul­ti­ple nom­i­na­tions for an in­di­vid­ual physi­cian.

The 100 physi­cian-ex­ec­u­tives who re­ceive the most nom­i­na­tions will be placed on a fi­nal bal­lot. From Jan. 17 through Feb. 25, read­ers can cast their vote via ei­ther web­site.

Pre­vi­ously, the 50 physi­cians who re­ceived the most votes make the fi­nal list, with the rank­ing de­ter­mined by the num­ber of votes re­ceived. How­ever, start­ing this year, read­ers’ votes will count for only 50% of the out­come. The other 50% will come from the ex­pert opin­ions of the se­nior editors at Mod­ern

Health­care and Mod­ern Physi­cian.

Mod­ern Health­care and Mod­ern Physi­cian also re­serve the right to re­solve vot­ing ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties.

The fi­nal 2011 rank­ing will be pub­lished in the May 9 is­sue of Mod­ern

Health­care and Mod­ern Physi­cian.
