Wisconsin ‘WIpop’ data collection is based on a modified HIPAA Compliant 837 claim file format . The Hospital and Ambulatory Surgery Center Manual’s provided below will serve as the cornerstone to help facilities develop accurate high-quality claims files that include data elements not found or reported on the actual claim, but required for requirements.
Not only is the discharge data provided statutorily required, it allows WHAIC to create reports that help hospitals and ASCs grow their organizations market share, benchmark quality, aide in healthcare cost and utilization projects and help state and federal government services develop policies and more.
Last WIpop Manual Update: November 2023
