Since the first edition of the Huffington Post’s most active chief information officers on Twitter, healthcare leadership execs have stepped up to the plate to increase their online presence. Today, healthcare CIOs account for 8 percent of the Post’s 100 most social CIOs on Twitter; ranging from diverse specialties: IT officials, nonprofit gurus and healthcare systems officials, who have joined the online marketplace of healthcare activity.

This increased online presence should not come as a surprise to healthcare professionals, due to the need for virtual marketing and constant social media interaction. It has proven to be just as important as presenting a quality product and service, because if no one is talking about you, then who will buy your product?

MedCity News has provided the following list of the 10 most sociable healthcare CIOs as a resource to healthcare professionals everywhere:
