The Pediatric Quality Award (PQA) uncovers amazing improvement work happening in children's hospitals. After reviewing 76 entries from 46 members, expert judges selected 12 projects to advance as semifinalists in one of four categories: Clinical Care, Delivery System Transformation, Patient Safety and Reduction of Harm and Waste Reduction/Improved Efficiency.
CHA will honor the semifinalists, and announce the category winners and overall winner, at the 2016 Quality & Safety in Children's Health Conference on March 8.
Sharing these experiences with other children's hospitals facing similar challenges is a vital part of the PQA program. CHA will promote and spread the 76 accomplishments across every level of membership during the following year.
