The National Institutes of Health states that Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a brain disorder that impacts one’s coordination, balance, shaking and stiffness. Parkinson’s Foundation writes, “Nearly one million people in the U.S. are living with Parkinson's disease (PD). This number is expected to rise to 1.2 million by 2030.”
The WHA Information Center analyzed hospital claims from 2019 to 2022. There is a decrease in the number of visits over time. COVID-19 had a strong impact on visits seen in the second quarter of 2020. Men have a much higher visit count than women do—similar to what national trends see of men being affected by PD more than women.
WHA's 2023 Wisconsin Health Care Workforce Report shows that the health care workforce must grow faster to meet the increased demand for health care created by an aging population.
The WHA Information Center (WHAIC) provides actionable information to increase the efficiency and effectiveness with which Wisconsin hospitals provide care to their communities. And the latest WHAIC data resource—the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Mapping Tool—is no exception.
The Guide to Wisconsin Hospitals provides detailed information about each hospital in Wisconsin. For each hospital, the publication provides selected measures of utilization, service, staffing and finance.
