    Health Resources Services Administration
    Emergency Medical Services for Children Innovation and Improvement Center
    Role Description: The EIIC is focused on improving outcomes for children in emergency situations by using improvement science as the basis for our efforts to address known gaps in the US healthcare system. Our aim is to accelerate improvements in the quality of care and outcomes for children in need of emergency care through the development of quality improvement (QI) initiatives across the continuum of pediatric care: Accelerating improvements in pediatric healthcare requires greater efficiency of all functions within the US health care system. Infrastructures that maintain the nation’s assets for supporting emergency medical services for children must be transformed from mere coordination and dissemination centers to active cores for QI. More than simple collaborative relationships, this structure requires integrated daily functioning of key stakeholder organizations and their quality improvement champions. We use improvement science as the basis for our collaborative efforts to improve outcomes for children in emergency situations. Our collaboratives are networks designed for shared learning, driven by an evidence base and known gaps to facilitate rapid translation of research into clinical practice. We support these collaboratives through varied learning systems, coaching, project management, information technology infrastructure, data management, and analytics.
