WHIO names Dana Richardson CEO

The Wisconsin Health Information Organization (WHIO) has named Dana Richardson its new chief executive offer (CEO). She will assume the role August 30, and will collaborate with retiring CEO Josephine Musser until the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition.

Richardson has been serving since April as Acting Executive Director of the nonprofit PCPI® Foundation in Chicago. Previously, she served six years at the American Medical Association (AMA) as Director of Operations and Strategic Initiatives for the PCPI, which was originally convened by the AMA. From 2002 to 2010, Richardson was Vice President for Quality Initiatives at the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA).

“Dana Richardson is a proven leader who thinks strategically and acts decisively, setting goals, solving problems and seeing tangible results,” said Linda Syth, who serves as WHIO board chair and is also president of Wisconsin Medical Society Holdings. “Her background in quality and efficiency at the local and state level in Wisconsin, along with her work at the national level with physician societies and performance measurement, make her uniquely qualified to engage caregivers where their heart is – great patient care.”

The Wisconsin Medical Society is a founding member of WHIO, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the quality, affordability, safety and efficiency of health care in Wisconsin. More information about Richardson’s appointment is included in this press release.
