Comparing Quality of Providers How do your medical providers compare with other medical providers in your community? Read The Community Checkup, the annual report highlighting health care quality and value at medical groups and hospitals in Washington state from the Washington Health Alliance (WHA). What is the Washington Health Alliance? The Washington Health Alliance (formerly the Puget Sound Health Alliance) is a collaborative group of health care organizations, businesses, and residents in King, Kitsap, Pierce, Snohomish, Island, Skagit, Spokane, Whatcom and Thurston Counties. Alliance members work together to improve the quality and affordability of health care in our region. The yearly Community Checkup Report allows providers, payers, and consumers of health care to compare health care quality, cost, and patients' experience across medical groups, clinics, hospitals, and health plans. The ambulatory measures reported on Medicaid and commercially insured patients focus on prevention, chronic disease management, generic substitution, and appropriate use of services.
