HPS Fireside Chats: What Data Can Tell Us About the Future of Healthcare

The Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality is dedicated to the mission of using healthcare data and public reporting to improve the quality and affordability of healthcare in Wisconsin. But what does that look like when a global health event upends the healthcare system, creating a massive anomaly in healthcare data?

HPS CEO Terry Rowinski sat down with WCHQ’s Chris Queram and Gabrielle Rude to discuss how the pandemic is affecting healthcare data reporting and the trends they’re seeing influence shifts in the quality, access and value of care in Wisconsin.

Chris and Gabrielle share how WCHQ’s healthcare data collection and analysis is impacting Wisconsin’s health systems, including:

  • What the gap in preventative health during the pandemic means for future patient health
  • How some providers were more prepared for the sudden changes in care
  • How metrics on care and quality have changed with the pandemic
  • Where WCHQ is seeing opportunities to improve disparities of care
  • ...and more!

This discussion is on the latest episode of HPS Fireside Chats, a healthcare and business interview series based on the idea that learning from one another is the best way to prepare for what’s to come in the healthcare industry at this critical juncture in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
