Miami Children's Hospital Senior Vice President and CIO Ed Martinez (pictured) believes that much of the future of patient care is tied to an ability to reach patients through telehealth and mobile solutions.
He was named the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives' Innovator of the Year in 2012 for leading the development of an eHealth initiative that sought to boost patient engagement while simultaneously improving workflow processes, all of which was part of a larger effort to serve underserved communities.
"We're able to provide telemedicine technologies fronted with engagement and wellness software, which allow for a doctor away from the office," Martinez told FierceHealthIT at last week's Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society's annual conference in New Orleans. "That's where I think a lot of care is going."
