The Center for Innovation in Chronic Care Delivery and Decision Making was created to improve the outcomes for children and adolescents with chronic illnesses by accelerating the development of effective care delivery methods through research and quality improvement. We have brought together scientists and healthcare providers from multiple disciplines to foster change and facilitate experimentation.

Our multidisciplinary research and clinical team members are passionate about improving outcomes through change and creating the future of chronic care management for patients. The interventions and innovative methods being explored and studied involve:

  • Care delivery
  • Education and training
  • Health communication
  • Shared decision making
  • Advanced technology
  • Self-management / adherence

The guiding principles for the center include:

  • Focusing on the needs of the patient and family
  • Building a research community focused on improving care delivery and decision making within pediatric chronic conditions
  • Fostering and facilitating a multidisciplinary team that embraces change and experimentation
  • Taking calculated risks to enhance care and management of chronic diseases
  • Creating or redesigning / redefining processes, products and roles
  • Achieving value and learning from successes and failures
