    March of Dimes, NeoQIC host Neonatology Quality and Safety Forum

    Westborough, MA, June 14, 2013 —

    The second-annual New England Neonatology Quality and Safety Forum was held on June 13 at the Doubletree Hotel in Westborough.

    The event was co-hosted by the Neonatal Quality Improvement Collaborative of Massachusetts (NeoQIC) and the March of Dimes Massachusetts Chapter. The keynote speakers were Charles Homer, MD MPH, the associate clinical professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and co-founder, president and chief executive officer of the National Initiative for Children's Healthcare Quality (NICHQ) and Rick McClead, MD MHA, the vice chairman and professor for quality in the department of pediatrics at the Ohio State University College of Medicine and a member of the Section of Neonatology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

    The objectives of the forum were to present material and create an open discussion about safety initiatives and newborn healthcare improvements. The conference brought together more than 100 healthcare professionals like doctors, newborn care practitioners and researchers. A variety of topics were addressed at the conference including “Improving Birth Outcomes for All—Working At Scale Across the Continuum of Care” presented by Homer, “Using QI to Decrease Length of Stay for Neonates with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome” by McClead, and “Ventilators, Ventilation Modes, and the Intubated Newborn: Finding Best Practices in a Sea of Options” by Martin Keszler, MD.

    “The three main goals of the day are to learn, share and inspire,” said Munish Gupta, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and chair, NeoQIC of Massachusetts. “Hosting this forum helps us improve the quality and safety of neonatal care throughout our region.”

    Workshop sessions were also held giving the guests more opportunity to discuss and share ideas. The conference wrapped up with an informative poster session in the main lobby. The posters educated the participants on work related to prenatal or newborn care being done in hospitals and networks throughout New England.

    “We challenge each institution to go away and start a new QI project in the next few months based on what they learn here today,” said Gupta.
