- The Wisconsin Health Information Organization (WHIO) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality, affordability, safety and efficiency of health care in Wisconsin. It was founded in 2005 by several stakeholders, including the Wisconsin Medical Society.
- WHIO’s Datamart is:
- the only statewide voluntary all-payer claims database in the nation.
- comprised of health care claims data from 20 insurers statewide over a 27-month period.
- The latest Datamart includes data on more than 4.2 million individuals—that’s more than 73 percent of Wisconsin’s population—and over 290 million claims totaling $94 billion in billed charges.
- For “Did You Know,” the Society uses WHIO’s Datamart to analyze health care costs and quality based on myriad parameters, including geography and other demographics, health care organizations, individual providers, disease categories or major practice areas and specific procedures.
