"The exchange of health care information in a timely and secure manner is an essential piece of the framework required to transform health care delivery into a high value experience for the patient as well as the provider.

"I became involved in WISHIN because it supports the Business Health Care Group's (BHCG) initiative of controlling health care cost trend. Health information exchange is critical since sharing the right health information at the right place and right time will provide for improved efficiency and quality of care which are essential to cost control."

"I was invited to join the WISHIN Board to represent consumers, who are frustrated and confused by the health care and insurance systems. HIE initiatives are important because they will help improve integration of providers and payers, and lead to higher quality and lower costs for the patient."
"I have lived my life with the philosophy that we should leave the world a better place than we found it. There is so much that can be done to improve how we exchange information between qualified health care providers . . . and someone has to step up to the plate and do it! WISHIN is the entity that can do the most good and do it the quickest. "
