Abstract

A commitment to quality improvement is mandatory for pediatric centers dedicated to caring for the child and adult with congenital and acquired heart disease. This is particularly true as pediatric cardiac surgery and critical care moves far beyond mortality, as the defining outcome measure of success of a heart center, and as health care, nationally and internationally, undergoes transformative change. The coming years will likely see a premium placed on health care that is cost-effective and health care that is judged to be of good value. As members of multidisciplinary teams of providers caring for children with critical and chronic cardiac disease, congenital heart centers are uniquely positioned to drive process change in delivery of both general and highly specialized care.
