Ohio children’s hospitals announce successful results of collaboration

Ohio Children's Hospital Association, April 9, 2008

The Ohio Children's Hospital Association has deemed successful a collaboration to improve quality. The OCHA and its six member hospitals created the Ohio Children's Hospital Association's Quality Improvement Collaborative in 2006 to promote improved quality of care at children's hospitals. The Collaborative focused on reducing preventable codes occurring outside of the neonatal and pediatric Intensive Care Units.  Through the initiative, the Collaborative implemented a Rapid Response Team that reduced incidences of preventable codes by more than 20 percent, according to an OCHA release.
