President Barack Obama was voted the most powerful person in healthcare by readers of Modern Healthcare, the nation’s leading weekly healthcare business news magazine. It’s the second consecutive year Obama topped the magazine’s annual ranking of the 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare. “The passage of national healthcare reform legislation in March clinched the top spot for Obama,” said Modern Healthcare Editor David Burda. “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will change the delivery of healthcare services in this country forever, and it was Obama unrelenting pursuit of the legislation that made it happen.”
