The editors at Healthcare IT News know that a great story starts with great sources. In every issue, we talk to scores of professionals who are working on the front lines of healthcare information technology. At hospitals. In physician practices. At payer organizations. Consultants. Vendors. Analysts. Government officials. They're the newsmakers. We've been honored to bring their voices, their insights and their vision to you, our readers, in 2005. And we plan to reach out to even more in 2006.
