6 Wisconsin health care systems forming statewide network

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Six of Wisconsin's largest health care systems are forming a statewide network to contract with insurers, and to share what works best for each group.

The partnership includes health systems that serve about 90 percent of Wisconsinites -- Aurora Health of Milwaukee, UW Health of Madison, Gundersen of La Crosse, Aspirus of Wausau, Bellin of Green Bay, and ThedaCare of Neenah.

Jeff Thompson of Gundersen says it's not a merger or a consolidation -- but rather, a true partnership which will allow each system to learn more rapidly from each other, and serve patients more efficiently.

Among other things, each group uses the same technology for its electronic medical records.
