Wisconsin Nursing Home Clinical Performance ScoreCard
Phase II: Pilot Testing

In Phase I of this initiative, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) engaged the University of Wisconsin Center for Health Systems Research and Analysis (CHSRA), with input from the nursing home associations and other long term care stakeholders, to produce a nursing home quality performance measurement system tested for credibility and ready for statewide implementation.

Phase II involves the recruitment of several Wisconsin nursing homes who are already members of the Clinical Resource Center (CRC) to pilot test the reporting system and associated CRC clinical content. In Phase II these group will assist in selecting which measures are most useful and identifying appropriate resources and protocols to employ to improve or maintain a high level of measured performance. A final report will recommend next steps to make the reporting system available throughout Wisconsin. As with the prior phase, the ultimate outcome of Phase II is to improve clinical outcomes for Wisconsin nursing home residents, which will also improve their quality of life.

The ScoreCard project is available to selected pilot facilities on the CRC website.
