Mission, Vision, Values
WCHQ publicly reports and brings meaning to performance measurement information that improves the quality and affordability of health care in Wisconsin, in turn improving the health of individuals and communities.
The Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality (WCHQ) dramatically improves the health and increases the value of health care for the people of Wisconsin.
WCHQ builds consensus and drives improvement by practicing these values: trust, participation, inclusiveness, shared responsibility, openness, adaptive self-governance, intellectual output, acknowledgement, and transparency.
