To create a meaningful, long-term collaboration of stakeholders invested in child health care quality, with the common purpose of improving the health of all children and youth in Oregon.
The Oregon Pediatric Improvement Partnership is a public/private partnership dedicated to building health and improving outcomes for children and youth by:
- Collaborating in quality measurement and improvement activities across the state,
- Supporting evidence-guided quality activities in clinical practices,
- Incorporating the patient and family voice into quality efforts,
- Addressing systemic patterns of inequity and oppression, and
- Informing policies that support optimal health and development for all children and youth.
In all our efforts, we value:
- Building collaboration and consensus around a vision for child health quality.
- Eliciting and incorporating the family and patient voice in quality improvement and measurement initiatives.
- Promoting a global view of child health that recognizes that the developmental trajectory and building of health capacity occurs in the context of the child’s family and community; including raising awareness and providing facilitation that specifically addresses the impact of racism and other systemic social injustices on child health.
- Raising awareness and providing facilitation that recognizes that outcomes for children and youth are optimized by linkages and communication between health and community-based systems. Within this work, addressing the inequitable access to and availability of culturally and linguistically aligned services.
- Serving as a resource for policymakers, and providing guidance for policy decisions.
- Promoting the incorporation of proven evidence-based interventions into practice, as well as broadening the evidence that underlies pediatric practice.
- Serving as a knowledge resource which continually supports and encourages pediatric health care professionals toward providing outstanding clinical care.
- Supporting quality improvement through the development of quality measures, measurement strategies and tools.
