Kevin Hutchinson


President and Chief Executive Officer

Kevin Hutchinson is a recognized expert and leader in healthcare information technology. He possesses deep expertise in interoperability, clinical transaction routing, automation of physician practice workflow, and the exchange of patient information across a community's healthcare enterprise.

Prior to joining Prematics, Mr. Hutchinson was the founding president and CEO of SureScripts from 2002 – 2008. He led the effort to finance, build and deploy a national network for electronic prescribing and health information exchange. Under his leadership the Pharmacy Health Information Exchange grew from an industry concept to the largest, most successful electronic prescribing network in the country. Today, it is considered the gold standard for pharmacy interoperability and the routing of electronic prescriptions throughout the nation. During his tenure, SureScripts certified more than 95% of all pharmacies in the United States, contracted and connected over 150 various physician technology vendors, and processed over 50 million electronic prescription transactions.

Prior to launching the Pharmacy Health Information Exchange at SureScripts, Mr. Hutchinson was chief operating officer at MedicaLogic/Medscape Inc., a publicly traded electronic medical records and physicians portal company, where he was responsible for all operations, marketing, product development. Previously, Mr. Hutchinson held leadership positions at VHA Inc., Oracle and IBM.

Considered an expert on the subject of healthcare technology, Mr. Hutchinson's testimony regarding electronic prescribing before various Senate and House Committees as well as the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics focusing on healthcare information technology, is influencing the future of industry standards. Mr. Hutchinson, however, believes that achieving meaningful interoperability and collaboration in healthcare requires looking beyond just the technology and instead to the ways in which it is applied by the various users of it.

Mr. Hutchinson is a member of the eHealth Initiative's Board of Directors, the Markle Foundation's Connecting for Health Steering Group. His work with standards as well as stakeholders was recognized on September 13, 2005, when U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt selected Mr. Hutchinson to serve as one of 16 commissioners of the American Health Information Community (AHIC), formed to develop standards and interoperability necessary to accelerate adoption as well as utilization of healthcare IT.
