Hosted by NYeC’s Board of Directors, the Gala & Awards serves to recognize and honor the achievements of those improving healthcare through technology. We were thrilled to recognize the invaluable contributions of our five honorees. This year, David Blumenthal, MD, President of The Commonwealth Fund received the Transformative Leadership Award. Additionally, NYeC honored:
