Jane Weber Brubaker, Editor of eHealthcare Strategy & TrendsThe key challenges facing healthcare systems today re­volve around the quality and effi­ciency of care delivery. How can technology optimize the time and talents of the care team in a rapidly evolving environment that focuses on care coordination? Will fee-for-service be replaced by value-based models? When? How can providers qualify for Meaningful Use incen­tives?

Encouraged by its breakthroughs and innovations in these areas, Marshfield Clinic launched a new healthcare technology company, Marshfield Clinic Information Services (MCIS). The expertise that Marshfield Clinic has acquired as a result of its own successful acceler­ated learning curve will now be available to MCIS customers.

Marshfield Clinic is a nonprofit physician-run multispecialty practice with more than 50 locations in northern, central, and western Wisconsin. Founded in 1916 by six physicians as a group practice, the clinic is home to 7,000 employees, including 700 physicians represent­ing 80 specialties and subspecialties. The clinic has a long history of health information technology inno­vation, beginning 50 years ago with telemedicine.
