New Individual WCRC Logins!

Starting September 4, 2012 we will start phasing out the shared facility based username/passwords for access to the WCRC website. During the month of September we ask that you and all members of your facility who want to access WCRC register to get individual WCRC usernames/passwords. After October 15th the facility based usernames will no longer work. Getting your new username is easy, simply click the link that says ‘Register’, then follow the online instructions to create an individual username associated with your facility based email. Once you receive email confirmation containing your password you will be all set to access the WCRC website with your new username and password. Spread the word, everyone in your facility can now have their own logon access to WCRC.

Access to the WCRC website is available to all nursing home staff including all Wisconsin Nursing Homes affiliated with WHCA/WiCAL or LeadingAge Wisconsin (formerly known as WAHSA). It is a logon based website. If you know your logon information simply enter it above to access the website. If you need access to the website please contact your member organization to get your username and password.

The Wisconsin Clinical Resource Center (WCRC) project is jointly sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, the Wisconsin Health Care Association (WHCA/WiCAL) and LeadingAge Wisconsin (formerly known as Wisconsin Association of Homes and Services for the Aging - WAHSA), through funding from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS). Website development and training activities have been guided by the WCRC Advisory Group. The Advisory Group along with representation from DQA recommends and reviews content provided in the website and training. Development support is provided by staff from the Center for Health Systems Research & Analysis (CHSRA).

The WCRC website is designed to provide key information about clinical care. The website is not intended as an exhaustive listing of all resources; the key content identified has been selected by a diverse group of professionals working in long-term care. To facilitate ease of use, each care area module is organized using a framework that provides tools, guidelines, related regulations and additional resources for learning. We hope this will provide a dynamic forum for sharing useful information and resources.
