Journey to a Healthier Wisconsin – Setting the Stage for SDOH Z Code Data Capture

Webinar Series

SDOH can have a profound impact on health outcomes; and yet, developing and sustaining processes to build a culture of health remains a challenge. Currently, no standardized SDOH collection exists, resulting in incomplete data and gaps in important information, placing health care systems at a disadvantage when seeking to effectively identify, prioritize and intervene on SDOH. 

In collaboration with the WHA Information Center (WHAIC), the WHA quality team is offering the first of a four-part SDOH webinar series, featuring Gloria Kupferman, Chief Data Strategy Officer at the American Hospital Association. This webinar will provide the background and purpose of this significant collaboration, stress the importance of Z Code Data Collection from the national perspective, emphasize the importance of capturing SDOH data in the medical record, and provide an overview of Z code collection in Wisconsin to offer hospitals and health systems valuable information to help improve health outcomes in their communities.     


WHA Health Care Leadership Academy

The health care sector has been operating through constant change for decades while navigating rapidly advancing technologies, evolving standards of care, changing patient and population demographics, cost pressures, evolving fee and reimbursement models, and complexities in the legal and regulatory environment. With the recent pandemic and significant future change on the horizon, this transformation and disruption creates a need to build resilient and capable healthcare leaders with the skills to successfully navigate the complexities and opportunities of the future of healthcare.
Hospital leaders have a particular need to understand the “business of healthcare” so that they can contribute in more meaningful ways to better patient care, cost management, and effective service delivery.
In response to this need, the Wisconsin Hospital Association, in partnership with the Wisconsin School of Business Center for Professional & Executive Development (CPED), is proud to announce the inaugural program year of the WHA Health Care Leadership Academy.
