When you are one of the state’s top healthcare systems, you are committed to excellence. Yet, because each of our members is driven to continually improve, we hunger for new ways to deliver the highest quality and most efficient care. During our ongoing Collaboratives, our six healthcare members share their expertise and experience on innovative and improved ways to deliver the best care for those conditions of greatest importance to employers and community members.
By sharing best practices, across our healthcare systems, we are able to streamline processes and implement the best procedures to help patients. The Collaboratives touch all individuals within a practice: physicians, nurses, laboratory, recovery, x-ray, the list goes on. By including all touchpoints, we effectively ensure the learning is broad reaching and is implemented across disciplines.
When you hear the word “collaborative,” you may think of “two or more people working together.” At AboutHealth, a collaborative is a living, breathing process with the goal to dramatically improve the quality of healthcare provided to our members’ patients.
Here’s our Collaborative Process:
Collaboratives result in transformational care: reliable and consistent, delivered across all members, so our system's employees and patients receive the highest quality care.
These best practices are used across the six healthcare systems. Throughout the state, patients receive consistent, higher quality care through the shared learning of best methods for treating specific healthcare needs.
That results in a healthier, more productive, less costly workforce, as well as access to the highest quality healthcare providers, whose primary purpose is to keep you well and get you back to good health.
While our current rankings are impressive, we want to continuously improve to be the “best of the best” in delivering quality and efficient healthcare.
AboutHealth takes pride in the quality and efficiency of each of our six healthcare systems. Yet, we don’t simply celebrate their accomplishments individually. We use information and data analytics from Wisconsin Health Information Organization (WHIO) and the Wisconsin Collaborative on Healthcare Quality (WCHQ), independent third-party organizations, to measure our six healthcare systems’ performance against all others throughout the state.
