Brennan named one of 10 influential women in health IT

Fierce Health IT has named Lillian S. Moehlman-Bascom Professor of Nursing and Industrial and Systems Engineering Patricia Flatley Brennan, PhD, RN, FAAN, FACMI, one of “10 Influential Women in Health IT” for 2013.

FierceHealthIT's Dan Bowman writes: “From government officials to hospital administrators to patient advocates, women are making an impact in health IT by leading innovation and change in all facets of health care.” Bowman says readers responded in a big way, voting for women “who are changing the face of personal health data and patient engagement, advancing nurse informatics, promoting mHealth and telemedicine, using technology to improve global health care, developing health care apps, and more.”

Brennan is known nationally for her work directing Project HealthDesign, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation national program, and her leadership to push the growth and evolution of personal health records.

In other media sightings, Brennan was recently interviewed by The American Nurse about how nurses can use the current wave of technology, including smart phone and computer applications, to improve the health of their patients. That story is slated for its September/October issue and is scheduled to appear in print and online versions the first week of October.
