“Data is critical,” says Tommy Farrell. “Health systems and community-based hospitals need the data WISHIN provides.”
Farrell is an employee benefits account executive for M3 Insurance in Madison. M3 signed an agreement with the Wisconsin Hospital Association last year, which led to his awareness of WISHIN. He is impressed by what he has learned thus far. “I think (WISHIN) is vitally important in the healthcare industry,” Farrell says. “We really look at data to give us direction in most industries. Healthcare providers need the data WISHIN provides to make better decisions on their own operational goals and activities.”
Farrell says he cannot think of a reason why a healthcare provider would not want to be part of the WISHIN system. “The data WISHIN extracts and analyzes,” Farrell says, “is just as valuable to a hospital in southwest Wisconsin as it is to a system in Green Bay.”
