WCHQ Disparities SummaryReport Overview

Widespread disparities exist in health outcomes and care in Wisconsin. Although Wisconsin ranks high in overall health care nationally, the state performs poorly with respect to disparities.

The Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality (WCHQ), in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin Health Innovation Program, developed the 2019 Wisconsin Health Disparities Report to identify where disparities in health outcomes and care exist in Wisconsin and to help inform and accelerate programs that are working to eliminate disparities. WCHQ hopes that by identifying and publicly reporting these differences, this report will draw attention to and promote public accountability, improvement and action by multiple stakeholders.

Eliminating health disparities is a task that cannot be done by health systems alone or accomplished in silos. This report can contribute to the identification of opportunities for health systems, health departments, policymakers, nonprofits and employers to develop collaborative approaches within their communities to create a healthier Wisconsin for all.

Funding Organization

Wisconsin Partnership Program

The Wisconsin Partnership Program (WPP) was established at the School of Medicine and Public Health in 2004 through a generous and visionary endowment gift from Blue Cross and Blue Shield United of Wisconsin’s conversion to a stock insurance corporation. Its mission is to improve the public health needs of Wisconsin and reduce health disparities through initiatives in research, education and community partnerships. The Wisconsin Health Disparities Report was funded by WPP through a grant to HIP and WCHQ.
