Quality and Outcomes Reports - Herma Heart Center
Overall clinic volume
Why we measure it - Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee offers several clinic locations throughout the state and in northern Illinois. Multiple locations offer greater convenience for patients and families and allow our pediatric specialists to care for a larger number of patients.
What this means - Research shows that physicians and hospitals that treat a large number of patients tend to provide better care and have improved outcomes for treatments and procedures. More patients and families are choosing our care. Our volume at our New Berlin Clinic decrease due to patient shifts and personnel changes in 2012.
About the data - This data shows the number of outpatient visits to our Herma Heart Center Clinics from 2009 through 2012.
