The Ins and Outs of Neonatal Care: Improving Critical Transitions for Every Newborn

Times of significant changes to care present some of the most challenging events for infants, families, and care teams. Teams in our Internet-based newborn Improvement Collaborative for Quality (iNICQ) will work with expert faculty in a structured improvement process to achieve, sustain, and demonstrate improvement of transitions.

A critical transition is any change in an infant’s site of care, significant change in their status or plan of care, or a change in the infant’s care team. These transitions occur withing a hospital or health system and between several hospitals and communities. Transitions can contribute to increased length of stay, separation from families, inefficient use of resources, and sub-optimal care.
