National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPC-QIC) - A Collaborative Initiative to Improve Care of Children with Complex Congenital Heart Disease


This study is a prospective, non-randomized, observational multi-center study, utilizing a quality improvement methodology to facilitate systematic care coordination, interstage cardiovascular monitoring, and nutritional monitoring into every day practice. Utilizes a national registry to document the impact of these changes on various care processes and outcomes. The aim of this Phase II project intends to: 1) develop and support a robust national registry to gather clinical care process, outcome and developmental data on infants with HLHS between diagnosis and the first year of life, 2) engage pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery programs in using the registry, and 3) use data from the registry to support and monitor the implementation of QI strategies to standardize and improve care for these infants.
