One of the country’s most expansive state-based qualityreporting systems is adding several more measures that show how Wisconsin hospitals rate on their birthing services. The Wisconsin Hospital Association’s CheckPoint website includes information on more than 90 quality measures from hospitals across the state, according to a news release. The 6-year-old site saw one of its largest single releases of new information recently, as birthing information from nearly 60 hospitals was added to the database. Parents-to-be can search the site to find out about a hospital’s birthing services and each facility’s performance on seven quality indicators related to the birthing process. The data are broken into two categories: clinical and safety, which relates to how services are rendered during the delivery process, and education and support, relating to information given to new families immediately after the birth and even after patients leave the hospital.
