How We Measure Up

ProHealth Care quality data

ProHealth Care has long been committed to educating consumers and patients about true value — what things cost and how they are rated — so that you can make informed decisions about where best to receive your health care. 

Greater public reporting of quality and performance information over the past several years places information in the hands of consumers. However, results can sometimes be confusing and difficult to compare among providers. That's why we've taken steps to place it at your fingertips, giving you access to easy-to-understand data that compares our performance to state and/or national benchmarks.

We also publish our patient satisfaction results — so you can find out directly from our patients how they rate the care we provide.

ProHealth Care actively reports its quality results to local and national organizations that are sources of credible information based on evidence-based standards of care. Learn more by visiting our External quality data links page

What we report

Quarterly, ProHealth Care publishes its performance on Center for Medicare and Medicare core quality measures, HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) patient satisfaction data, Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality measures and others. Where available, state and national averages, and the top 10 percent of highest performing organizations, are included for comparison purposes.

The data and descriptions included on this site do not represent everything there is to know about the quality of hospital, clinic, home, hospice and physician-based care. You should not choose a hospital or provider based only on the data and descriptions presented here. Current methods of assessing hospital and physician quality are not advanced enough to support such use.

It's important to note that ...

  • We do not decide which indicators or results to publish based on how it makes us look.
  • We give equal prominence to good and bad results.
  • Our indicator definitions and inclusion/exclusion criteria is consistent or identical to the current language and criteria used by the government or other data collection organization from which the indicator arose.
  • We display our results even if we disagree with the indicator definition.

Thank you for visiting us online. If you have any feedback about our quality information, please don't hesitate to contact us.
