Wisconsin Statewide Health Information Network (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. We were honored when they choose to speak with Beth Medina, iCare Director of Information Systems and me to feature iCare in a quick video.
While electronic health records (EHR s) have made it easier for providers within the same organization or on the same EHR system to share patient information, sharing information across systems and locations has always proved to be a challenge. WISHIN meets this challenge head-on with WISHIN Pulse—a community health record that provides an aggregated summary view of a patient’s health information from all participating providers who have seen the patient.
iCare was the first payer organization to sign an amendment with WISHIN to access the WISHIN Pulse community health record in February of 2018. We hope you enjoy the video.
