Welcome to WIHI


 

WIHI is an exciting "talk show" program from IHI, originally envisioned by Don Berwick, MD, former President and CEO, Institute for Healthcare Improvement. You can watch Don talk about WIHI in the video below.

WIHI is free, it’s timely, and it’s designed to help dedicated legions of health care improvers worldwide keep up with some of the freshest and most robust thinking and strategies for improving patient care. The quality improvement movement hasreached a tipping point in terms of global reach, provider and payer consciousness, and bold new ideas for health care reform. The opportunity to influence and shape what fundamental change looks like has never been greater. We invite you to sharpen your thinking and add to the momentum for system redesign.
 
The issues may be complex, but the format of WIHI is simple. It’s 60 minutes, every other week. There’s a host, one or more carefully chosen guests, and you — with your questions and comments. All we ask is that you register for the program in advance. You can join the program live — via computer or telephone or both — or you can listen to or download an archived audio file for listening later.
 
Your host is IHI’s Madge Kaplan, who brings a wealth of experience to WIHI from her years reporting on health care for public radio. IHI’s Director of Communications since 2004, and the regular “voice” of the 100,000 Lives and 5 Million Lives Campaign conference calls, Madge is known for her ability to create a shared space for lively and enriching discussions.
