Intermountain Healthcare's Charles Sorenson, MD, president and CEO, and Brent James, MD, chief quality officer, have been named among Modern Healthcare's "50 Most Influential Physician Executives in Healthcare." Dr. Sorenson and Dr. James are both listed in the top 20: James is #4, and Sorenson is #17. No other healthcare provider has two physicians in the top 20 and both have been on the annual list since 2011.
According to the magazine, the physicians on this year's list "are not only leading their organizations through tough financial times and budgetary uncertainty, but they also are helping to shape and transform the nation's evolving healthcare system from one that rewards volume to one that promotes quality and value."
The ranking began with nominations, which were narrowed to a final ballot of 100 physician executives who received the most nominations. The honorees were chosen by readers and the senior editors of Modern Healthcare and Modern Physician for their leadership in the varied sectors of the industry, whether provider organizations, government agencies, associations, insurers or supplier companies.
