Micky Tripathi was in the trenches of an e-health revolution long before most people were convinced a national, digitized, connected health information transformation would happen.

Back in 2003, Tripathi helped found the Indiana Health Information Exchange, what is now one of the country's largest and most successful regional health information exchanges. That was long before federal subsidies for electronic records, and even before President George W. Bush's 2004 goal for most Americans to have e-health records by 2014.

Tripathi worked first as a consultant and later as CEO and president of the Indiana Health Information Exchange, which partnered with the Regenstrief Institute to create a statewide health information infrastructure.

In 2004, the exchange brought in a local executive, Dr. Marc Overhage, and Tripathi moved on to become CEO of the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative.

MAeHC is a nonprofit organization--with a for-profit consulting arm--that in 2004 led a $50 million initiative funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts to roll out connected e-health records to providers in three communities in the state.

MAeHC is involved with HIE efforts in California, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, and New York. Tripathi's 30-person organization also runs the regional extension center in New Hampshire.

Tripathi taps his consulting background to help organizations map where they broadly want to be in five years and what concrete goals they want to implement in the next two years. Said Tripathi, "If we pretend to know what health IT will look like in five years, we're kidding ourselves."
