Wisconsin Hospital Association’s CheckPoint
Wisconsin hospitals are committed to sharing information about the quality and safety of the healthcare services they deliver. In doing so, the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) developed CheckPoint, a public reporting program of quality, safety and service measures. The hospitals reporting to CheckPoint provide care to more than 99 percent of the state's patient population.
CheckPoint provides information to:
- Purchasers on the quality of care provided by hospitals
- Consumers to help them choose a hospital
- Hospitals for quality improvement
CheckPoint gives a snapshot of Wisconsin hospitals' performance in key areas. With this information, healthcare consumers see how often each hospital provides recommended care for patients with certain conditions or the progress hospitals have made towards national patient safety goals. The public can use this information to compare how different hospitals perform and how they work to promote quality improvement efforts within hospitals.
CheckPoint provides reliable data on interventions that medical experts agree should be taken to treat heart attacks, heart failure and pneumonia; surgical services measures that research indicates will lead to the best outcome for common procedures, and error prevention measures.
