Did you know…?

Now appearing in Consumer Reports…
As a result of a unique collaboration between the Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality (WCHQ) and the Consumer Union (the publisher of Consumer Reports), health care quality data collected by WCHQ from its member health care providers will be repurposed and published as an insert in the February edition and iPad version of Consumer Reports.

Recognizing the lack of trustworthy health information available for consumers, Consumer Reports is building a strategy to incorporate health information and comparative ratings into its consumer reporting portfolio. On newsstands in January, the insert will feature WCHQ diabetes and preventive care measures along with supporting articles regarding diabetes care and the significance of preventive care. The insert will reach approximately 90,000 Wisconsin subscribers which will significantly expand the visibility of WCHQ data and promote transparency in the state.
