The Wisconsin Inter-Tribal Managed Care Demonstration Project was initiated as a partnership between the
University of Wisconsin Medical School and the Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council. WIM Care conducted extensive
data analysis and then implemented management and clinical strategies to improve quality of care, reduce costs,
and increase revenues at Tribal clinics.
