Description of Research Expertise

Founding member and Chair of the Children's Hospitals Neonatal Consortium (CHNC), a benchmarking organzation of neonatologists working in children's hospitals NICU's. CHNC partnered with the Child Health Corportaion of America (now the Childrens Hospitals Association)to develop the Children's Hospitals Neonatal Database, a data repository for infants cared for in Level IV NICU's which was launched in 2010. The CHNC's mission is to improve care and outcomes for infants cared for in children's hospitals NICU's. The CHND is rapidly becoming the largest clincial data repository in the world for infants with uncommon to rare neonatal diseases and has had 6 peer reviewed publications within the past 9 months and is running its 2nd national quality improvement collaborative.

Description of Clinical Expertise

At the national level (CHND, VON and the Children's Surgical Taskforce) I am working on developing clinical pathways and care standards for infants with uncommon diseases. Locally I have been making a major effort to develop a clincal pathway process in the division so that both in the network and at CHOP we can optimize our care for both quality outcomes and value.
