Brief Summary:
The purpose of this initiative is to improve care and outcomes for infants with HLHS by expanding the NPC-QIC national registry to gather clinical care process, outcome, and developmental data on infants with HLHS between diagnosis and 12 months of age, by improving the use of standards into everyday practice across pediatric cardiology centers, and by engaging parents as partners in the process.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) Other: Collaborative Learning Network

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this initiative is to improve care and outcomes for infants with HLHS by: 1) expanding the established NPC-QIC national registry to gather clinical care process, outcome, and developmental data on infants with HLHS between diagnosis and 12 months of age, 2) improving implementation of consensus standards, tested by teams, into everyday practice across pediatric cardiology centers, and 3) engaging parents as partners in improving care and outcomes.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Relationship between the implementation of changes in care delivery with changes in the process [ Time Frame: 15 months ]
    The purpose of this data sharing is to facilitate QI and research activities. As more information is gathered in this registry, the study team will determine the data analyses methods to determine if the knowledge gained led to changes in care delivery and/or to better patient outcomes.
