Milwaukee County Department of Family Care joins WISHIN

WISHIN welcomed Milwaukee County Department of Family Care (MCDFC) to the network in March. 


"We're pleased to have MCDFC come on board as a WISHIN client," said WISHIN CEO, Joe Kachelski, "It spotlights the value of automated, electronic health information exchange.  We've got very good participation among the hospitals, health systems and community health centers in Milwaukee County. The information they are contributing to WISHIN is going to have a real impact on MCDFC and others when it comes to improving care coordination and patient outcomes."
