New Community Checkup demonstration webinar available
The Alliance’s Director of Communication and Development, John Gallagher, recently hosted a webinar demonstrating some of the many features of the Community Checkup website. Topics covered include how to compare scores, view scores by topic, how to interpret the results, and much more.
The Community Checkup is a resource for unbiased, trustworthy data and analysis of the quality of health care in Washington state. This is your chance to learn more and get your questions answered.
As John says in the webinar, “Previously, we had taken consumers to the end of this giant data lake and told them the glass of water they wanted was somewhere within it. Now, with this tool, with just a couple of simple steps we’re allowing consumers to get to the glass of water that meets their needs.”
The Washington Health Alliance is a place where stakeholders work collaboratively to transform Washington state’s health care system for the better. The Alliance brings together organizations that share a commitment to drive change in our health care system by offering a forum for critical conversation and aligned efforts by stakeholders: purchasers, providers, health plans, consumers and other health care partners. The Alliance believes strongly in transparency and offers trusted and credible reporting of progress on measures of health care quality and value. The Alliance is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit with more than 185 member organizations. A cornerstone of the Alliance's work is the Community Checkup, a report to the public comparing the performance of medical groups, hospitals and health plans and offering a community-level view on important measures of health care quality (www.wacommunitycheckup.org).
