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

Enhancing Value

The Wisconsin Medical Society and physicians across the state have made a commitment to transparency by using credible, robust data to improve quality and efficiency and make health care more accessible for Wisconsin citizens. One way the Society is accomplishing this is by analyzing health insurance claims data from the Wisconsin Health Information Organization (WHIO) database to assess differences in health care quality and utilization.

As a founding member of WHIO, the Society is interested in how claims data may be useful in studying utilization patterns in relation to appropriate-use criteria and cost-sensitive best practices. The goal of these efforts is to enhance value and to ensure that as many people as possible have access to high-quality, affordable health care.
