More Than 60 CHA-related Projects Featured at Pediatric Academic Society Meeting

More than 60 research projects involving Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) member hospitals, data and staff will be shared at the industry-leading Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) meeting, April 25-28. 

The projects include individual and multi-hospital research efforts as well as CHA analytic, quality and child advocacy programs. More than 30 studies used patient encounter data from the Pediatric Health Information System (PHIS), demonstrating how children’s hospitals are using this evolving data resource. (These are noted with * in the list below.)
