The Wisconsin Institute for Healthcare Systems Engineering (WIHSE) is a research initiative in the College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin – Madison which will act as a hub to bring together practitioners and researchers in health care and engineering to conduct research, create new knowledge, and design better systems in health care.
The vision of WIHSE is “to be the premier research institute that transforms health care through engineering, positioning us to achieve the Quadruple Aim of revolutionizing the patient experience, improving population health, controlling healthcare costs, and enhancing clinician satisfaction.” Download a printable WIHSE brochure.
