At a time when the federal government is spending up to $30 billion to fuel implementation of electronic health records and health information exchanges efforts to boost the security of digitized information to protect patient privacy are more important than ever.

The goal of our Influencers project is to highlight 10 leaders who are making a difference. 

Who's leading the way to make sure government regulations adequately protect patient privacy? Who are the leading advocates on behalf of healthcare information privacy and security? Who has developed innovative security programs at a hospital or other healthcare organization? We'd like to know what you think.

The goal of our Influencers project is to highlight 10 leaders who are making a difference through their thought-leadership and their collaborative efforts. For example, Joy Pritts, chief privacy officer at the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, would be a candidate. But so would consumer privacy advocates, healthcare chief information security officers and a wide variety of others.

To nominate an Influencer, please send me a note at describing why the individual you'd like to see honored merits the recognition. Tell us how the individual is leading the way toward improved patient privacy and information security. Submit your nominations by Thursday, March 1.

And be sure to look for our 10 Most Influential People in Healthcare Information Security announcement in the weeks ahead.
