Re-Imagining Quality Webinar Series

Join the conversation on the next generation of quality.  

Children’s hospitals have made remarkable progress in quality in the 20 years since the IOM published "To Err is Human" and "Crossing the Quality Chasm." Yet no one in the quality movement is complacent about the current state; if anything, there is a shared sense of urgency to improve faster, on a larger scale and with greater impact.

What will it take to achieve quantum improvement of health outcomes, experience and value for children and families by 2030? What does the next generation of quality look like?

Children’ Hospital Association is working with children’s hospitals and health systems to re-imagine quality for the next generation and support hospitals and communities as they work to accelerate progress toward improvement in health outcomes, experiences and value for children and families. 

The strong tradition of shared learning in pediatrics has played a significant role in the quality progress of both the industry and individual organizations. We will continue the shared learning in a series on quality, hearing from colleagues and fueling ideas and progress into the future.

Please join the conversation to begin to shape the next generation of quality.


Coming Up

How Learning Health Systems Can Achieve Better Patient Outcomes

A foundational element of the next generation of quality is learning health systems, organizations or networks that embed continuous self-study to adapt practices using data and analytics to generate knowledge, engage stakeholders and implement behavior change to transform care. Learn how Montefiore Medical Center uses the concept of a learning health system to undertake innovative research, continuously learn and adapt, train the next generation of healthcare leaders and deliver science-driven, patient-centered care across their system.

Fostering a Data-Driven Culture
August 16, 3 - 4 ET
In this session, learn how one hospital’s analytics infrastructure evolved to endorse an organizational culture where stakeholders use meaningful data insights to enhance decision making and improve outcomes.

While focusing on equity and safety, Children’s Wisconsin has broadened their focus to include health literacy and providing clear communication with patients and families. Children’s Wisconsin is starting to include health literacy-related improvement opportunities into its quality work.
