In partnership with the Wisconsin Hospital Association, WHA Information Center (WHAIC) has also developed new structured and provider-specific reports that can assist hospitals’ quality improvement activities.
Two initial reports created focus on hospital-acquired infections (HACs) and potentially preventable readmissions (PPRs). Upon request, WHAIC is helping hospitals meet some of the data requirements for the CMS Partners for Patients Project.
