MANA clinicians are committed to delivering the safest and highest quality care to our patients. The science of Quality Improvement guides the adoption of new information and evidence into our daily practice. Systematic quality improvement initiatives allow clinicians to safely, efficiently, and effectively implement evidence-based innovations.
Our team monitors an array of clinical practices and outcomes in order to identify trends, positive and negative. We constantly monitor patient safety in real time, utilizing an innovative Neonatal Preventable Harm Index. In addition, we contribute data to the Centers for Disease Control and the Vermont Oxford Network. The latter is a voluntary, collaborative database that collects and analyzes an assortment of outcomes from very low birth weight infants (<1500 grams at birth) born all over the world.
