Department of Health Services: Wisconsin celebrates advances in using health information technology

In honor of National Health IT Week, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is celebrating advances in health technologies that connect members and providers.Health information technology (Health IT) improves the quality of health care delivery, increases patient safety, and decreases medical errors. Wisconsin was recently ranked #2 nationwide in a critical measure of Health IT used by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

“Health IT strengthens the relationship between patients and health care providers across Wisconsin’s health care systems,” said DHS Secretary-designee Andrea Palm. “Most importantly, health technology enables us to modernize health care delivery to improve care and promote the health and well-being of all Wisconsinites.”
