PR-COIN: Making the Case to Hospital Leadership

Leading Quality Improvements in
Pediatric Rheumatology Care
A Learning Network Approach
Movement Toward Learning Networks
Are JIA Patients Achieving Desired Outcomes?



Are all children with JIA receiving the best care
possible according to recommended guidelines?
Are pediatric rheumatologists working in systems
that allow us to do the best by our patients?
Are patients and families getting all the information
they need to understand JIA, make decisions
about treatments, and effectively care for
their child at home?
Research is Not Quickly Implemented




Research IS important but application lags
Average of 17 years for new evidence-based
findings to reach clinical practice1
People talking to people is how norms and standards
quickly change 2
What is needed are systems and a cultures where
doing the right thing is what people do, day in and
day out, even when no one is watching 2

QI systems are needed
to support improvement
Healthcare Improvement
Needs a QI System
• In current U.S healthcare
system, patients often
receive less than half of
clinically indicated
standard of care
http://www.iom.edu/Reports/2001/Crossing-theQuality-Chasm-A-New-Health-System-for-the-21stCentury.aspx).
• Improvement research
requires a large base of
data and instances to test
improvement tools.
• Limitations - small
numbers of pediatric
patients at each clinic site.
Learning Networks Movement
to Address Needs
• Multi-site, practice-based
clinical networks.
• Combine engaged patients and
families, multidisciplinary
clinicians and staff, researchers
and communities.
• By combining patients and
practices across a Learning
Network, improvement is
enhanced and accelerated.*
• Provides foundation for QI
research, testing and
implementation.
Sample Learning
Networks – Big and Small
• American Board of
Pediatrics (ABP)
• Agency Healthcare
Research and Quality
(AHRQ)
• Patient-Centered
Outcomes Research
Institute (PCORI) is
acclaimed for engaging
patients and clinicians to
improve health outcomes
• PR-COIN is 1of 9 Learning
Networks coordinated by
the Anderson Center of
Health Systems Excellence
at Cincinnati Children’s
Hospital Medical Center.
“It takes an average of 17 years for new knowledge generated by randomized
controlled trails to be incorporated into practice, and even then application is highly uneven.“
Institute of Medicine reports (2001)

The Case for a JIA Learning Network
JIA:
Challenge:
Variation
Opportunity:
PR-COIN
• Chronic childhood painful,
inflammatory joint condition
• Affects 1:1000 children
• Can lead to long term
disability, pain and reduced
quality of life
• Associated eye inflammation
(uveitis) can cause vision loss
• Early diagnosis and proper
treatment improves long term
outcomes
• Variation exists in
treatment patterns by
providers, medical centers
and geographic locations
• Network of experts
• Developed tools and
successful processes
• Learning from peers and
share best practices
• Maintenance of
Certification
• Challenge: Patients are
not reaching optimal
outcomes (inactive
disease, low pain score)
• Outcomes:
• Improve care
• Increase family
engagement
in process
PR-COIN Uses QI to Improve Care
International, quality improvement Learning Network working to
improve care for children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis



Launched in 2011 as
sustainable collaborative of
pediatric rheumatologists with
focus on quality improvement
initiatives
15 Sites -2 Canada, 13 in US,
and growing*
Over 2,160 unique patients
registered in database and
growing monthly*
*As of January 2015
Learning Networks are Successful –
ImproveCareNow example
Learning Network Success in Other
Chronic Diseases
The successful Improve Care Now network is a stellar example of the power of learning networks. No new medications
were introduced, yet by sharing insights, tools, documents and processes 66 teams standardized their site’s practice and
reached 77% remission rates in 5 years. That is much better than the usual 17 years! There is power in collaborating.
