President & CEO
For over 25 years, Kerry Martin has been building and managing companies that provide solutions for all types of healthcare. In 1998, he founded a web-based, regulatory content and chargemaster maintenance application called CodeCorrect. As CodeCorrect’s CEO, Kerry helped hospitals by ensuring payment for the services they performed with his line of web-based products and assisting in the navigation of the ever changing reimbursement rules.
In 2000, CodeCorrect acquired MedRelevance where Kerry successfully combined the resources of the two companies to create the extremely successful CodeCorrect products. The resulting CDM product became the most installed CDM product in hospitals nationwide, earning CodeCorrect the #18 ranking on Inc. 500’s fastest growing companies in 2004 and #81 in 2005. He was instrumental in the successful acquisition of CodeCorrect by UCG in 2004, Accuro Healthcare Solutions in 2006 and MedAssets Inc. in 2008.
In 2010, with the help from a board of certified orthopedic surgeons, Kerry turned his attention to ICD-10, learning about the thousands of changes in vocabulary and additional documentation requirements. The next year, with this newly acquired knowledge, he founded VitalWare. Kerry and a team of physicians and certified coders have created a physician documentation ontology that bridges the gaps between the physician’s terminology and the coder’s terminology required for accurate documentation in ICD-10. Since 2011, VitalWare has effectively launched six innovative web-based revenue cycle management software solutions to assist organizations in facilitating revenue cycle success. Through Kerry’s adept leadership and innovation, VitalWare has flourished. The company’s success once again hasn’t gone unnoticed, coming in at #123 on the Inc. 500’s “Fastest Growing Companies of 2015.”
