IMPACT Registry and National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative: Contributions to Quality in Congenital Heart Disease
Martin and colleagues describe two efforts to improve outcomes within the congenital heart disease field: the Improving Pediatric and Adult Congenital Treatments (IMPACT) Registry and the National Pediatric Cardiology-Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPC-QIC). The authors discuss some of the insights that have been gained using data from the IMPACT Registry and outcome improvements that have resulted from the collaborative structure of the NPC-QIC. They emphasize the importance of both registries and learning collaboratives to ensure that best practices are both identified and implemented.
