The Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) COVID-19 dashboard registered the lowest number of COVID hospitalizations—186—since the association first started collecting data related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The previous low of 192 was on April 2, 2020, when the dashboard first went live in the earliest stage of the pandemic.
Hospitalizations in Wisconsin peaked at 2,277 on Nov. 17, 2020, after a precipitous 13-week rise, and have since fallen steadily, hitting a low of 193 on March 21, 2021, before rising again to 350 on April 25. The current low represents a 92% drop from November’s high.
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.
