Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality

How WCHQ Began

In early 2003, chief executives from Wisconsin health care provider organizations came together to discuss forming a collaborative. Recognizing the importance of performance measurement, these leaders partnered with health care purchasers to create the Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality (WCHQ). They started developing a unique set of ambulatory care measures that enable medical groups to collect and report data on all patients in their practice. WCHQ members actively use these measures to drive internal improvement efforts and reach across organizations, sharing their knowledge and learning from the highest performers.
