Welcome

The EMSC Innovation and Improvement Center is spearheading a QI collaborative to assist state programs in accelerating their progress in improving the pediatric readiness of EDs and to develop a program to recognize EDs in their state that are ready to care for children with medical emergencies. State improvement teams will benefit by interacting with experts in both pediatric readiness and facility recognition, as well as a cadre of QI specialists.

By December 2017, this Quality Improvement Collaborative aims to increase by 50% the number of states that have developed an implementation plan to recognize EDs that are ready to stabilize and/or manage children with medical emergencies based on national guidelines for the care of children in EDs.
