Charting Pediatrics

Oct 20, 2020

Register for this week's COVID-19 Provider Town Hall! Live Q&A with the Children's Colorado pediatric infectious disease team and updated epidemiology of the pandemic : 

Hospitals and pediatric practices are under increasing pressure to be publicly transparent about their quality and safety outcomes. The rapid growth of quality improvement initiatives and surgical outcomes in pediatric heart care has made national news headlines in recent years, demonstrating the correlation between pediatric heart surgical volumes and outcomes for kids. On today’s episode we are going to discuss outcomes transparency in pediatric heart care and the work that one nonprofit has done to lead the way in data transparency.

Today we are fortunate to be joined by David Kasnic, Executive Director for the non-profit, Conquering CHD.
