The recognition demonstrates ThedaCare’s commitment to Population Health and its mission of improving the health and well-being of communities served.
“Population Health is a revolutionary idea about how improved community health can be achieved while lowering the total cost of care and immeasurably impacting the quality of care delivered,” explained Dr. Imran Andrabi, ThedaCare President and CEO. “ThedaCare is dedicated to individualized care, where our providers work to understand each person’s medical background, risks, lifestyle, personal values and goals.”

“The commitment to financial responsibility will allow us to protect patient care and remain a strong organization that can continue caring for the people of Northeast and Central Wisconsin long into the future,” said Dr. Andrabi. “As we continue to reinvent health care and become a proactive partner in care, it enables our team members to empower each person to live their unique best life through wellness, prediction, prevention and healing.”
