Martin Health System
Ed Collins
Vice President and Chief Information Officer
When Ed Collins joined Martin Health as vice president and chief information officer in 2008, the fully integrated electronic medical record had not yet been adopted. Fast forward seven years later, and Martin Health has been using the EMR for four years—and managing the flow of confidential information has become the number one priority.
“Health care is both constantly changing and extraordinarily complex,” Collins said. “The EMR provides us with an enormous quantity of data that can be used to improve the quality of services and outcomes, and support an efficient, financially stable organization.”
Under Collins’ leadership, Martin Health System has been recognized as a Most Wired Hospital by Hospitals and Health Networks for the fourth year in a row. Most Wired hospitals must meet rigorous criteria related to infrastructure, business and administrative management, clinical quality and safety, and clinical integration.
