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

Inaugural OnRamp Healthcare Conference draws over 500 attendees

Wisconsin Medical Society reinforced itself as the leading voice for physicians by sponsoring the inaugural OnRamp Healthcare Conference in collaboration with gener8tor, one of the nation’s premiere start-up accelerators, and WisMed Assure.

OnRamp Healthcare brought together more than 500 physicians, investors, entrepreneurs, and health care leaders for a packed one-day conference focused on how new technology will drive how physicians care for their patients. Society members participated as panelists, moderators and advisors for the event, and also vetted and offered feedback for health care innovators.

“Our physicians are on the front line of new technology that will dramatically shape how patients access care, how physicians deliver that care and how the bill gets paid,” said Bud Chumbley, MD, CEO of the Wisconsin Medical Society, “The Society is amplifying the physician voice by getting deeply involved in the development of amazing disruptions to the health care status quo.”

Held at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, the conference included keynotes, break-out sessions, elevators pitches to investors and app-empowered networking. OnRamp Healthcare is part of a series of industry-specific conferences produced by gener8tor.

Dr. Chumbley added, “The partnership with a well-respected voice in the innovation space allows us to advance our mission of empowering Wisconsin physicians to deliver high quality patient care in a rapidly changing world.”

The Society will continue to empower physicians to drive change through technological innovation that brings the patient and physician closer together. Moving forward, the Society will identify new startups and innovators and connect them to our members in order to ensure that physicians have a strong voice in the development of patient care for the future and the health of Wisconsin.
