Kids need their own care. And pediatrics needs its own data tools.

Let data drive your decisions

Leading a children’s hospital is hard work. Let us make identifying improvement opportunities easier.

When it comes to using comparative data to identify improvement opportunities, it’s important to focus on hospitals and patient populations like yours. That’s why we created a suite of pediatric-specific data and benchmarking solutions with children’s hospital needs in mind.

Through CHA’s Pediatric Analytic Solutions, you can contribute to a growing pediatric data set to benchmark against the nation’s top children’s hospitals.

Making data-driven decisions means comparing against not just any hospital, but the right ones.
