This can make it difficult for community organizations, health systems, government agencies, researchers and others to Identify and prioritize health improvement opportunities at the local level and/or target neighborhoods experiencing disparities.

Our reports, tools, and resources are available to identify new or confirm existing opportunities for improvement, inform strategies, strengthen proposals to secure resources, build supportive partnerships, advocate for change, and support evaluation in Wisconsin neighborhoods.

Reports are available for most Wisconsin neighborhoods (neighborhoods are defined by ZIP codes) covering 27 health care quality measures. Reports can support communities, government and health care organizations, and researchers to identify or confirm local opportunities for improvement.
