Children’s hospitals are committed to providing safe, effective, timely and equitable care for children through child and family-centered care. They lead the nation in providing pediatric hospital and specialty care, educating pediatric physicians and health professionals, implementing clinical information technology, researching new technologies and developing patient care practices.
Because enhancing quality and patient safety is a priority, we are pursuing three overarching strategies:
- Facilitate children's hospitals' leadership to transform care for children
- Advocate for children and children's hospitals in the national quality environment
- Build measurement capacity to guide patient safety and quality improvement efforts that are child-focused and evidence-based
