Quality improvement initiatives

SPLIT is a central driving force for understanding the standards of present practice and setting the framework for collaborative, and innovative progress in improving the quality and quantity of life for pediatric liver recipients. We have passionate experts from the pediatric liver transplant community who are dedicated to “moving the needle” in quality patient care. This objective is strategically accomplished by targeting challenging areas of liver transplantation that most impact outcomes such as life-threatening complications, benchmarking best practices, implementing the latest healthcare technologies, and facilitating a platform for quality improvement clinical projects that will provide substantive value to the SPLIT centers and the patients/families they serve. Past collaborative projects have disseminated high-performer practices in minimizing major surgical complications, shortening hospital length of stay, and standardizing quality program practices.
