3 Vermont Oxford Network (VON) Started in 1988 Two databases –VLBW infants (632 centers, 48,768 infants in 2006) –Expanded DB (164 centers, 88,583 infants in 2006) –Reports Annual reports in September Nightingale Web site Collaboratives –Two year QI Collaboratives –Internet Based Collaboratives Multi-center research trials Annual Quality Congress

4 Salem NICU Participation in VON Database since 2004 NIC/Q Collaboratives –NIC/Q 2007 and NIC/Q 2009 I-NIC/Q collaboratives –Decreasing Late NICU infections –Value Compass –Neonatal Encephalopathy/Hypothermia Research –Hypothermia registry (treatment/follow up) –Nurse staffing

5 NICU Key Areas of Work Implement Evidence Based Clinical Practice changes and standardize clinical processes Optimal management of intravascular devices for neonates Safer care –Improved resuscitation and stabilization and admission care –No late infections –Meet SH standards for regulatory patient safety goals Communication and Teamwork training and implementation Developmental care Family centered care More equitable care for both babies and families Increase individual staff engagement and capabilities around key areas of work Support “Her Place” Be environmentally greener Develop a measurement system related to the work we are doing and connects us to the Quality Improvement work of our hospital

6 NICU Measurement System Based on Dartmouth System –Patient Outcomes--Clinical Value Compass –Unit Quality—Balanced Scorecard –Additional supportive measures—Dashboard Linked to Family Birth Center and Salem Hospital Quality Initiatives –Cascading measures

7 Functional (Babies returning to FU Clinic)  “My family adjusting well to having baby at home”  “I feel good about my ability to care for my family and myself”  Neurodevelopmental FU status Clinical Value Compass (Patient Population in Parenthesis) Biological/Clinical ( , all admits)  Survival w/o morbidity  Weight gain and head circumference growth velocity  Late infection rate Cost ( , all admits)  LOS Patient/Family Satisfaction  Satisfaction with Kangaroo Care (all families interviewed)  Press Ganey Overall Score (all)  Press Ganey Overall Rank (all) Unit of analysis is patient

8 Database reports Outcome and process measures –Key performance measures Risk adjusted –1 year, 3 year Comparisons –Network: VON average and 10th, 25th, 75th percentile centers –US centers –Type A,B,C centers –Northwest Newborn Centers

9 NICU Risk Adjusted Outcomes Mortality Complications –Lung injury- pneumothorax, CLD –Brain injury-hemorrhage (IVH), ischemic (PVL) –Eye injury-ROP –Bowel injury-NEC –Late Infections-Noso, CON, LBI, Fungal Survival without morbidity Length of stay for Survivors
