EMR’s Executive Team
Mr. Wedekind is the CEO of one of the largest and most successful Independent Physician Associations serving the Houston, Texas and Gulf Coast areas: IntegraNet Physician Resources, Inc. (Please see www.IntegraNetHealth.com for more information.) His vision of developing a clinically and financially integrated healthcare delivery system in the Gulf Coast region of Texas required that a revolutionary, low-cost, state-of-the-art electronic health record solution be identified and adopted by the physicians in his network. He and Ed Horn started EMR in early 2007, as a result of this shared vision and their combined healthcare management experiences in Houston. Mr. Wedekind and Mr. Horn are responsible for creating the unique Application Service Provider (“ASP”) model and Monthly Subscription model that EMR utilizes to cost-effectively deliver this highly integrated and interoperable EHR service to licensed physicians.
Ed Horn – President
Ed is one of the founders of Electronic Medical Resources, LLC, continuing to fulfill a lifelong dream of providing tools that actually improve healthcare delivery quality while reducing costs at the same time. After working with Cameron Iron Works for 15 years, he went on to start two different managed care companies, Sanus and Managed Healthcare Inc. While with those companies, Ed addressed how corporations could work closely with providers to contain costs while delivering higher quality healthcare services. He holds a Bachelors of Science as well as an MBA degree, and continues to study advanced technology to improve Clinical Integration and Pay for Performance.
