Licensure & Regulatory Reform

As one of the most regulated industries in the state, Wisconsin’s hospitals and health systems are burdened with significant levels of regulatory compliance from federal and state agencies. Recent data has shown that the averages size hospitals dedicates 59 full time equivalent positions, a quarter of which are providers like physicians and nurses, to regulatory compliance. The cost of this regulatory compliance is roughly $1,200 for every patient admission. WHA provides leadership to members and policymakers by identifying regulations that are either duplicative or unnecessary, creating adding more work for health care providers and more cost to patients seeking care in Wisconsin hospitals. WHA also works on reform regulations as care practice and healthcare technology evolves.
