“Paula, and the great work that is being done at the Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth, are perfect examples of what we are trying to accomplish in Georgia - bringing key executive leadership and commercialization together for a common purpose with a shared goal of making Georgia a healthier place to live and work. Paula started locally, went statewide and is now branching out nationally. This type of tenacity and drive will no doubt keep the Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth on a successful track and will help continue to raise the bar in maintaining Georgia as the nation’s Health IT Capital,” said David Hartnett, Vice President, Economic Development, Bioscience-Health IT Industry, Metro Atlanta Chamber." says David B.

The awards, given annually in conjunction with the Health IT Leadership Summit, recognize excellence in individuals and companies. The awards were created by MAC in recognition of the major role the health IT industry plays in Georgia’s economy. Georgia is the health IT capital of the nation, with more than 225 health IT companies employing approximately 16,000 in the state.

The Health IT Leadership Summit was founded in 2010 by three organizations to support the growth of the health IT industry: the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Metro Atlanta Chamber and Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) Health.

The Summit ranks as one of the nation’s premier health IT events, with more than 500 business leaders, healthcare providers, and public and private organizations in attendance each year.
