Executive Director
Paso del Norte Health Information Exchange
Emily Hartmann is the Executive Director at PHIX (Paso Del Norte Health Information Exchange). Under her leadership, PHIX has grown to exchange data with additional hospitals and clinics in the community as well as the Veteran’s Administration and Department of Defense nationally. Throughout COVID-19, she positioned PHIX as a vital public health resource. For example, she transitioned the City of El Paso Department of Public Health Laboratory from a paper-based ordering/results process for COVID-19 lab tests to an electronic process in April 2020. PHIX’s contributions then expanded to include facilitating transfers during the COVID-19 hospital surge and reporting COVID-19 vaccinations electronically to the Texas ImmTrac registry. PHIX continues to strengthen it's community and is now providing innovative solutions for healthcare gaps like the transfer of trauma images electronically, a closed loop referral system, and COVID-19 vaccine efficacy. Emily also has experience in health care analytics and strategy. As a health care consultant at Sg2, she helped hospitals prepare for policy changes and evolving financial models. She also has experience developing health initiatives for the City of Chicago and State of Massachusetts. Hartmann has a Masters in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School and a Bachelors in Economics from the University of Chicago.
