The Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality (WCHQ), in collaboration with Health Innovation Program, developed the Wisconsin Health Disparities Report to identify where disparities in health outcomes and care exist in Wisconsin and to help inform and accelerate programs that are working to eliminate disparities.
The goal of this report is to present recent Wisconsin data on disparities in health outcomes and care, comparing measures by race/ethnicity, payer and rural/urban residence. WCHQ hopes that by identifying and publicly reporting these differences, this report will draw attention to and promote public accountability, improvement and action by multiple stakeholders.
Funding for this report was provided by the Wisconsin Partnership Program, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
The Appendix contains detailed methodology, measure definitions for all WCHQ measures, and tables including performance and denominator data for all measures stratified by race/ethnicity, payer and rural/urban residence.
The Infographic contains the concluding results of the disparities report.
