General Pediatrics at Children's Hospital is committed to improving the health of children and families, especially those with higher risk for poor health outcomes. We do this through innovation and education of the next generation of pediatric providers at all stages of learning.
Our clinical discoveries improve the health of children worldwide. General pediatric research seeks to improve important public health problems that affect children, such as obesity, asthma, and access to health care.
What we do
- We serve the underserved, providing a safety net for families.
- We develop and test quality improvement initiatives to better our health care delivery process and outcomes.
- As a medical home, we provide comprehensive, coordinated, continuity care.
How we do it
We use a continuous quality improvement approach to test new ideas and evaluate what works using team feedback and objective metrics. In this way, we make many small improvements over time that lead to better care for the children we serve.
Why we do it
- To improve the health of largely underserved children and families who typically have a higher risk for poor health outcomes
- To innovate and lead others who also serve these children and families
