As CIO of HealthPartners, the country’s largest consumer-governed nonprofit healthcare organization, Alan Abramson has been at the forefront of some of the most innovative uses of technology in the healthcare industry.

For the past decade, Abramson has helped HealthPartners develop an integrated electronic health records (EHR) system for physicians and patients and established a collaborative exchange network that allows providers and payors throughout Minnesota to share clinical and administrative data in real time. In August, HealthPartners became one of the first organizations in the country to integrate electronic X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and CT scans, and radiology reports into patients’ EHRs.
