Improvement happens faster when individuals and organizations with shared interests work together. The association is leveraging existing relationships and creating new strategic partnerships with other providers, associations, clinicians and thought leaders dedicated to advancing children’s health.

American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)
The association frequently partners with the AAP on topics ranging from advocacy and measures development to clinical improvement topics. We are partnering with the AAP’s Section on Emergency Medicine’s Pediatric Septic Shock Collaborative. 

Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) Making Dialysis Safer Coalition
CHA's SCOPE Dialysis Collaborative is a proud partner of the CDC's Making Dialysis Safer for Patients Coalition. This coalition of diverse dialysis organizations promotes use of CDC’s core interventions and resources, which have been proven to prevent bloodstream infections among hemodialysis patients. 

Children’s Hospitals’ Solutions for Patient Safety (SPS)
The association works closely with SPS, a strategic partnership consisting of more than 80 children’s hospitals working to help each individual hospital prevent serious pediatric patient harm. 

The association partners with ImproveCareNow to spread the excellent results and promote the newest standards of care in pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).  Working with care providers, researchers, patients and families, the network uses scientific data and improvement methodologies to drive improvements for kids with Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis. 

National Pediatric Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPC-QIC)
This initiative, with 57 participating care centers, is focused on improving the outcomes of children with cardiovascular disease. The association supports the spread of improved care and outcomes from the collaborative by offering members shared learning opportunities.
