e-MDs Hires Robyn Leone as Director of Public Policy & Government Initiatives

Texas Business reports:  AUSTIN—e-MDs, a provider of electronic health records (EHRs), is appointed Robyn Leone as director of public policy and government initiatives.

Prior to joining the e-MDs team in February of 2012, Leone was the director of the Colorado Regional Extension Center (CO-REC), one of 62 ARRA-funded extension centers dedicated to assisting primary care and safety net providers with EHR implementation and adoption while achieving “Meaningful Use” objectives.

Leone's hire is part of e-MDs' ongoing effort to focus on government relations and pursue working with numerous Regional Extension Centers (RECs) and Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) across the country.   

Leone brings more than 16 years of diverse health care industry experience to e-MDs, having held positions in health care administration, disease management program development, health IT, performance management, and health care quality improvement and analysis.

“We are honored that Ms. Leone has joined our team,” said e-MDs chief executive Michael Stearns in a prepared statement. “During her time in Colorado, she directed one of the most successful HIT programs in the country, making her an ideal fit for e-MDs' national informatics and policy initiatives.”

“I am excited to be part of the e-MDs team and have the opportunity to use my experience with government programs and health information technology with one of the leading EHR companies in the country,” said Ms. Leone in a statement.
