WISHIN is an independent not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing the benefits of widespread, secure, interoperable health information technology to patients and caregivers throughout Wisconsin. WISHIN is building a statewide health information network to connect physicians, clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, and clinical laboratories across Wisconsin. Our vision is to promote and improve the health of individuals and communities in Wisconsin through the development of information-sharing services that facilitate electronic delivery of the right health information at the right place and right time, to the right individuals.
Statewide electronic health information exchange (HIE) offers the promise of timely, relevant information that can lead to better clinical decisions, less duplication, more effective transitions of care, and reduced administrative costs. It all adds up to better information and better outcomes. And that’s better for patients and caregivers alike.
