Christopher Wenner Recognized as Leader in Implementation of Electronic Health Records

Christopher Wenner, MD of e-MDs, a provider of electronic health records, was recognized in December, 2011, by Minnesota's Regional Extension Center for Health Information Technology (REC) for his leadership in the nationwide transition toward electronic health records.

According to a press release, he worked with REACH, the REC designated by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to assist clinicians in Minnesota and North Dakota in becoming meaningful users of electronic health records.

"e-MDs is pleased to congratulate Dr. Wenner on being recognized for his ability to use health information technology in a manner that benefits the care he is providing to his patients," said Michael Stearns, MD, CPC, President and CEO of e-MDs. "We are seeing a promising relationship develop between the advanced use of our EHR, Meaningful Use, and the Patient Centered Medical Home; an encouraging trend that will improve care while rewarding physicians for the quality of care they provide."

Dr. Wenner will get one of the first incentive payments in Minnesota made under the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs

 "I really valued the help that REACH gave to me. It would have been much more challenging for me to do this by myself," Wenner said.
