The strategy of the WIPHO is to enhance the viability of the WIPHO partners through identification of business opportunities and services.

The PHO board is made up equally of physicians and hospital administrative staff.

PHO objectives include:

  • Gain statewide acceptance of a uniform credentialing form
  • Implement a group purchasing option for physician participants
  • Continue to provide practice support services (coding, compliance)
  • Promote legislative advocacy
  • Pursue PHO clinical integration strategy

Annual dues are $250. If you have any questions regarding the PHO, please call Christopher Dooley, Executive Director, at 401-736-4279 or e-mail him at cdooley@carene.org
