HIMSS recognizes Didi Davis as one of the most influential women in health IT. She is the vice president of informatics, conformance, and interoperability at The Sequoia Project, a non-profit organization selected as the Recognized Coordinating Entity (RCE) to support the implementation of the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA).
