100 Most Influential People in Healthcare Award – World Edition at MEDICA 2017

After an extensive market research, careful consideration and voting by journalists, the 100 people with the most outstanding performance in healthcare in the world this year have been chosen. They will be recognized for their work at an event on November 14th, at MEDICA 2017, in Dusseldorf, Germany. This event is going to be the first edition of the World's 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare Award, and representatives from the US, the UK, Germany, China and India will be amongst those receiving awards for their exceptional work.

There are ten categories in total with 10 people elected in each of them, though there is no ranking among them. The categories are: Industry, Innovation, Hospitals, Education and Research, Sector-specific entities, Philanthropy, Management, Business, Reference and Sustainability.

The event is organised by Grupo Mídia, a communication organisation that has been operating in the Brazilian Market for 10 years. It has been giving awards to healthcare professionals for their work in Brazil for the last five years. The winners are selected after an extensive market research and voting by journalists and editors from healthcare publications, as well as Grupo Midia president and directors.

Among the winners of the award in Brazil are Celina Turchi, Fiocruz scientist, who has led a research investigation into the relationship between infantile microcephaly and the Zika virus; Claudio Lottenberg, former president of the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo and now the head of Latin American services of UnitedHealth Group; and others. 

"In five years, 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare Award in Brazil has become a reference for the healthcare industry, because we have always tried to recognise the contribution for the development of the health system given by those individuals that are at the head of large companies and hospitals that are a reference to the entire industry, as well as scientists and health authorities”, says Edmilson Jr. Caparelli, head of Grupo Mídia. “From now on we will extend our recognition to people who have contributed the most to the world’s healthcare industry”, he adds.
