Today, PatientPing and WISHIN announced their partnership to improve the health of countless lives in Wisconsin by bolstering its care coordination efforts across the network with real-time patient notifications and additional context.
WISHIN, which stands for the Wisconsin Statewide Health Information Network, is the state’s designated entity for healthcare information exchange (HIE). Using PatientPing’s lightweight care coordination technology, WISHIN is improving upon the existing network of more than 1,500 care sites with real-time clinical notifications called “pings” as well as patient clinical and administrative context “stories” to help providers see the patient’s complete care history in a timely fashion and make better informed care decisions at the point of care.
In addition to connecting the entire US, this new partnership is set to rapidly grow PatientPing’s footprint in the Midwest region which includes Green Bay-based care delivery system Bellin Health and Mercy Health, a regional health system with locations covering northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.
“Our partnership with PatientPing will magnify the value of our current services,” said WISHIN CEO Joe Kachelski. “WISHIN has created a large community of engaged providers who can automatically share and access clinical records via the WISHIN Pulse community health record. Our partnership with PatientPing allows us to take the next logical step by immediately providing notifications to participants that something in their patient’s community health record has changed. This will help WISHIN deliver even more fully on its promise to ensure that those responsible for coordinating and providing care have timely access to the information they need.”
