You play a key role in making decisions about hospital care. As an active and involved partner in your hospital care, you will need information. That’s where CheckPoint comes in. This Web site provides reliable information about the quality and safety of care provided by Wisconsin hospitals.
CheckPoint gives a snapshot of Wisconsin hospitals' performance in key areas.

Wisconsin hospitals are committed to providing excellence in service, quality and safety of care to our patients. To demonstrate this commitment, Wisconsin hospitals voluntarily collect and report standardized data on CheckPoint. The 128 hospitals reporting to CheckPoint provide care to more than 99 percent of the state's patients. This is guided by the Wisconsin Quality Steering Committee, which includes a diverse group of people interested in improving health care.
