A welcome to Michael Ryan, FACHE, Chairman of Executive Impact Group, now blogging at Healthcare Futures. Mike is a recognized eHealth, healthcare and social networking pioneer having served as a founder, executive, advisor and board member of numerous companies. For my West Virginia readers, he also has a West Virginia connection that we uncovered when we first met - a connection through my wife who grew up in the Morgantown area .
Healthcare Futures plans to explore health care industry news, trends, and future visions from Michael's view over his career as an observer, executive, advisor, author, innovator, patient and online pioneer.
Check out his recent posts on the need for medical mentors as the baby boomers begin to overwhelm the health care system (what I have previously referred to as the pig in the python) and his post on Health Social Networking, which explores the "niche'ing" of social networking.
