Jane is also a frequent speaker on the subjects of health economics, consumers and technology and writes for the Huntington Post. Beyond that, if there’s a healthcare influencer list, she’s probably on it, including the HIT99, one of Healthcare IT Leaders Top 50 healthcare IT influencers on twitter, one of eVariant’s top 60 most influential professional twitter profiles to follow and one of Klick Health’s top 41 health-oriented social media influencers. And that’s just the lists from the last few months!
