Inflammatory bowel disease charges
Why we measure it - It is important to us, patients, families and insurance providers that we provide the best care possible at a competitive price.
What this means - Children's Hospital of Wisconsin's charges are slightly higher per visit for inflammatory bowel diseases compared to our Pediatric Hospital Information System (PHIS) peers while keeping survival rates high.
About the data - These data reflect the average adjusted charge per visit for inflammatory bowel disease at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin compared to PHIS peers from 2011 through 2012. Visits with extremely high and low charges in both Children's Hospital's and PHIS's inflammatory bowel disease data have been removed to standardize the data set. PHIS hospitals represent other leading free-standing pediatric hospitals.
