Wis­con­sin’s AboutHealth net­work loses UW Health, Marsh­field Clinic

Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS - —Mod­ern Health­care

UW Health and Marsh­field (Wis.) Clinic Health Sys­tem have left the statewide net­work in Wis­con­sin called AboutHealth. Their de­par­ture leaves the col­lab­o­ra­tive with six sys­tems, down from an orig­i­nal eight.

The orig­i­nal net­work, first formed in 2014, was aimed at im­prov­ing qual­ity of care and stream­lin­ing some pro­cesses. Madi­son-based UW Health was a found­ing mem­ber of the net­work, which now in­cludes about 48 hos­pi­tals and 8,000 physi­cians.

La Crosse-based Gun­der­sen Health Sys­tem, ThedaCare of Ap­ple­ton and Aurora Health Care of Mil­wau­kee are among the sys­tems that re­main in the net­work.

An­other sim­i­lar statewide part­ner­ship launched in 2010, called In­te­grated Health Net­work of Wis­con­sin. That group in­cludes Madi­son-based SSM Health and Froedtert Health and the Med­i­cal Col­lege of Wis­con­sin, both in Mil­wau­kee.
