Wisconsin delegation comes together on Doc Fix Bill

The Doc Fix bill contains a section (Section 105) that is a testament to perseverance and the ability of the Wisconsin delegation to work together.

The section itself was sought by a coalition of groups including our client the Wisconsin Medical Society to assist WHIO (Wisconsin Health Information Organization) in obtaining Medicare data so that it can be analyzed and packaged with other data to assist physicians and systems in learning how to improve care. WHIO has access to all Medicaid and most insurance data but could note obtain Medicare data except for public reporting. Under the new law WHIO can on behalf of its subscribers take all of the data, analyze it, and package it in a way that will allow improvements in quality and efforts to lower costs by doctors and others.
