Several California health experts have been named to Modern Healthcare‘s list of the top 100 most influential leaders in the health care industry. The list was compiled from more than 15,000 nominations by Modern Healthcare readers from March 17 through April 18. The final ballot consisted of the 300 candidates who received the most nominations. Readers then voted for their top five nominees, amounting to more than 31,000 ballots cast. Their votes counted for 50% of the outcome, while votes from senior editors at the publication counted toward the other 50%. Some of the California health care professionals that made the 13th annual list include: Bernard Tyson, president and CEO of Oakland-Kaiser Permanente, who ranked second and Lloyd Dean, president and CEO of San Francisco-Dignity Health, who ranked 21st according to a recent report at California Healthline.
