  • National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPC-QIC)

    The mission of the Joint Council on Congenital Heart Disease National Quality Improvement Collaborative is to improve dramatically the outcomes of care for children with cardiovascular disease.

    Join cardiac centers around the country in a network designed to improve care for children with cardiovascular disease.

    We plan to:

    1. Build a sustainable collaborative network of pediatric cardiologists in North America, including a registry database, to inform improvement projects. This network will provide opportunities for pediatric cardiologists to collaborate on quality improvement and research projects.
    2. Plan and implement a quality-improvement project for survival and quality-of-life of infants with HLHS during the “interstage” period between discharge from Stage 1 Norwood admission for Stage 2 bidirectional Glenn.

    Pediatric cardiology programs of all sizes are invited to participate in this collaborative. Benefits include participation in and access to a national improvement database, the opportunity to learn from and share successes with clinical teams from other participating centers and regular performance reports for your site and the chance to benchmark against aggregate collaborative data.
