Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

Broaden your knowledge on health care costs and quality with ‘Did You Know’

By Bud Chumbley, MD, MBA

Staying current on the latest health care news can be daunting, but as physicians we need to be aware of the issues that impact our profession.

In an effort to make this task a little easier, the Wisconsin Medical Society has launched a new web series called “Did You Know?” which we encourage you to add to your list of bookmarked resources (along with this blog).

Data compiled by the Wisconsin Health Information Organization is used to craft informative, easy-to-read posts for the Did You Know series so you and your colleagues can remain informed about health care costs and quality in Wisconsin, as well as broaden your understanding of some of the variations that occur depending on region, demographics, procedures, treatments and conditions.

Topics include Medicaid and mental health, congestive heart failure, diabetes, radiology, knee replacement and insurance coverage.

If you have a question you’d like answered by the experts at the Wisconsin Medical Society, we’d love to hear from you! Send us an e-mail with your question to insurance@wismed.org.
