Pediheart Podcast # 96: Interhospital Collaboration Improves Congenital Heart Surgical Outcomes

This week we review a recent report of the PC4 group assessing the impact of inter hospital open communication and collaboration on surgical outcomes. In what manner did participation in this collaborative CICU registry improve outcomes for different hospital surgical outcomes? Why was the improvement not homogeneous between centers? How long did it take for the impact of collaboration to positively improve outcomes? We discuss these and other questions with first author Dr. Michael Gaies, Associate Professor of Pediatrics - University of Michigan. doi: 10.1016/j.jacc.2019.09.04
