If you get checked by a doctor in the Marshfield Clinic System, you may soon have a better diagnosis thanks to a new program that will link ten health centers in the nation together. The Greater Plains Collaborative, part of the Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network (PCORnet), will link ten medical centers across seven states to provide evidence to help patients and their caregivers make better-informed decisions. Marshfield Clinic, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health are part of the new network.
