It takes skill to provide the best medicine, but also love to provide the best care.

Gundersen Health System in La Crosse is hosting a group of health professionals from China this week. The delegation is learning more about Gundersen's procedures and how it organizes its health system and trains its employees. Officials at Gundersen say visits like these are becoming more common as the hospital continues to build a national profile. While Gundersen does a lot of teaching on these trips, Gundersen's Vice President of Business Services says the learning experience goes both ways. Watch the story from WKBT News8000.
A local hospital is once again hosting guests from overseas.

Where once there were no options, now there is hope!
The TAVR procedure is an option for people who are not candidates for traditional open heart surgery like Evelyn Zirk, the 93-year-old who was the first to get the procedure done last year. http://goo.gl/EyRvOK

Regulatory compliance is a complex problem for hospitals and health systems. Gundersen's illustration of our sources of government regulation is raising awareness among thought leaders across the country.
This illustration reminds us of the need for interventions to reduce the complexity of government regulations for health systems and improve care.
