Each year the Nashville Technology Council inducts a tech industry leader to the NTC Hall of Fame, and this year that honor will go to Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s Kevin Johnson, MD, MS, professor and chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics and Senior Vice President of Health Information Technology.

Kevin Johnson, MD, MS

Johnson will be honored during the NTC annual meeting on Oct. 3.

An internationally known developer and evaluator of clinical information technology, Johnson received his MD from Johns Hopkins University and his MS in medical informatics from Stanford University. He joined VUMC in 2002 and became chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics in 2012. Under his leadership the department has grown to 49 primary faculty and 38 secondary faculty.

The NTC was founded in 1999 with a mission to serve as “a catalyst for the growth and influence of Middle Tennessee’s technology industry.”

Because VUMC is an NTC corporate member, tickets to the Oct. 3 event for VUMC employees are $50, half the cost of non-member tickets. For more information, visit the NTC website.
