Alexandra Cohen's father passed away because of healthcare that was uncoordinated. Not all of his medical records were kept electronically and so were not fully shared between his specialists. Because of this, Alie left a successful career at Microsoft to join the cause of updating health information technology and now works at the non-profit New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC). Alie's story is just one of the many reasons that complete and accessible electronic health records are critical, and one of the important stories that will be told at the NYeC gala and awards ceremony next month. Visit nyecgala.org for more information.

In the year since the first NYeC gala, there have been revolutionary advancements in health IT throughout New York and across the nation. On Monday, October 15th, five champions of health IT will be highlighted at the event, which will be hosted by the dynamic Maria Bartiromo, anchor of CNBC's "Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo."

  • General Electric CEO Jeffrey R. Immelt's work in standardizing health technology creates a clear path for products being developed across the globe, helping software and other systems work together and making electronic health records accessible from a doctor's office, to a specialist's iPad, to a school nurse's computer.
