Rachelle Schultz, Winona Health president/CEO, says for more than 10 years, Winona Health has been one of the pioneers in implementing an integrated Electronic Medical Record. Schultz says this achievement reflects the ongoing efforts of the entire team including administration, IT staff, healthcare providers and clinicians.
