MILWAUKEE (AP) - More than 100 Wisconsin hospitals have been collaborating to improve the quality of health care, and their efforts have paid off with a decrease in costly outcomes such as readmissions and hospital-associated infections, according to a report released Tuesday. Hospital officials around the state have spent the past few years stepping up efforts to share knowledge and best practices associated with patient care. The result has been better care and cost savings of nearly $40 million since mid-2012, the Wisconsin Hospital Association said.
