Announcement of Dr. Kleeberg Resignation

Leaves Stratis Health Well Positioned to Facilitate Change in Care Delivery

Published Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Dr. Paul Kleeberg will be leaving Stratis Health in November 2015 after five years as chief medical informatics officer, and as clinical director for Regional Extension Assistance Center for HIT (REACH).

"I really believe in the work Stratis Health does. I am proud of what we have accomplished together to help others leverage health IT to make lives better," said Dr. Paul Kleeberg.

Jennifer Lundblad, PhD, MBA, president and CEO, Stratis Health, wished Dr. Kleeberg the very best for the future and thanked him for his enormous contributions in shaping Stratis Health's vision for and work in transforming care and how to support health care organizations to succeed in multiple payment models.

As REACH clinical director, Dr. Kleeberg understood the details and embraced the intent of the federal health IT meaningful use rules. He was instrumental in working with physicians in hospitals and clinics across Minnesota and North Dakota to adopt electronic health record systems to improve quality of care. REACH is winding down services and will conclude work in February 2016. Program success includes 113 critical access and rural hospitals and 3,523 clinicians achieving Stage 1 meaningful use.

"Stratis Health has a robust health IT program that has been fostered by Paul's commitment and leadership," said Lundblad. "We are poised to continue strengthening the capacity of health care organizations and their partners to better coordinate care and use the tools of e-health to improve the health of individuals and populations."

Kleeberg noted, "I look forward to working with Stratis Health in the future to help the rural and small practice providers navigate these new payment models, so that they can flourish, provide quality care, reduce costs and meet the needs of their patient populations."

Upon leaving Stratis Health, Dr. Kleeberg joins Aledade as medical director.
