Cardiology QI Collaborative Collaborative2005The JCCHD committed to developing a National QI Collaborative for Pediatric Cardiology
Task Force Assembled in 2006:
Center for Health Care Quality
Cardiology QI Collaborative CollaborativeProject Selection Criteria
Cardiology QI Collaborative CollaborativeInitial Project Aim
To improve survival and quality of life in infants with a single ventricle during the “interstage” period between Discharge after Neonatal Cardiac Surgery and Admission for Bidirectional Glenn.
Cardiology QI Collaborative Collaborative
Possible Changes to Test
Assure appropriate discharge communication / coordination
Optimize nutritional status during the interstage
Improve survival & quality of life in infants with a single ventricle during the interstage between discharge from neonatal surgery and admission for the Glenn.
Improve interstage surveillance and response to changes in cardiovascular status
Under Development with input from families
