The Commissioner of Health, in conjunction with the Minnesota e-Health Initiative, recognized individual achievement and contributions to advance e-health in Minnesota over the past 10 years by honoring individuals at the 2014 Minnesota e-Health Summit, Looking Back to Celebrate; Looking Forward to Innovate, in St. Louis Park, on June 11.

Commissioner of Health Edward Ehlinger and National Coordinator for Health Information Technology Karen DeSalvo presented the awards. Four Stratis Health staff received awards: Jennifer Lundblad, president and CEO; Paul Kleeberg, chief medical information officer (CMIO); and Sue Severson, vice president of health information technology, were awarded the Individual Leadership and Impact Award for their vision, contributions to, and guidance of the e-Health Initiative in Minnesota. Greg Linden, Stratis Health chief information officer (CIO), received the Distinguished Service Recognition award for his years of dedication and work in the health information technology field.

The Minnesota e-Health Initiative is a public-private collaborative whose vision is to accelerate the adoption and use of health information technology in order to improve health care quality, increase patient safety, reduce health care costs and improve public health. Minnesota has been a leader in pursuing bold e-health policies and applying statutory mandates and governmental funding to accelerate the adoption of HIT, electronic health records and health data standards.

In addition to recognizing individual contributions, the awards highlighted the Minnesota e-Health Initiative’s impact on the health of the community by drawing attention to efforts to shape the e-health agenda and set priorities for the next 10 years.
