Children's Hospitals Today - Winter 2017 - 22


FEATURE / INNOVATION

The FRAMEWORK of CARE

BRANCHING OUT

16 | Consumerism
Many companies are best known for the consumer experience they
provide-take Disney and Starbucks, for example. And today, patients and
families have come to expect more than care from children's hospitals-
they want an experience. Providers now think of patients not as patients,
but instead think of patients and families as consumers with access to
mountains of medical information and control over their health care
choices. So children's hospitals need to be consumer-centric in what they
offer and in all they do.

17 | Familycentered care
One of the biggest shifts in
pediatric care is one that puts
the family at the center of
everything the care team does
for the patient. This means
working alongside families as
true partners in the child's care.
It means child life specialists
focus on emotional, social
and cognitive growth during a
child's hospital stay. And the
medical home model, where
a partnership between the
patient, family and primary
provider-in cooperation with
specialists and community
support-make the patient and
family the center point of care.

18 | Population
health
Understanding that social,
environmental and behavioral
factors determine more
than half a person's health-
health care makes up only 10
percent-population health is
a movement toward creating
conditions that address these
factors. In terms of care
delivery, it's a focus on quality
outcomes, not the volume
of care, but on the value and
results of the care performed.

19 | Creative
innovations
Whether it's direct
investment of capital
in promising startup
technology or offering
expertise in collaborative
ventures, children's
hospitals are sparking
innovation. By embracing
entrepreneurialism, they
accelerate the pace of
innovation, cultivate new
technologies and improve
the quality of care.

20 | Multiinstitutional
collaborations
"Future advances will be
predicated on pediatric
institutions working
together collaboratively
and not competing,"
Chang says. There are
many examples of this
today. Once accepted as
unpreventable, children's
hospitals have worked
together to reduce CLABSI
rates for more than a
decade. Hospitals have
built comparative data
resources and clinical
registries to identify
opportunities to improve
care and interventions that
result in better outcomes.
A pediatric patient safety
organization (PSO)
supports the collaborative
work of hospitals to
decrease serious safety
events, and hospitals
are sharing evidencebased practices to reduce
pediatric sepsis deaths.
Together, children's
hospitals are driving and
spreading improvements
with the goal of improving
pediatric patients' health.
