Teamwork: It’s an ingredient vital to delivering high-quality, high-value care for kids. But that cooperation is not only happening in house; more and more, as the emphasis shifts to cost control and quality, it’s occurring across different providers – even among apparent competitor organizations. Get an inside look at how strategic partnerships and “co-opetition” are impacting pediatric healthcare. Hear how some children’s hospitals are banding together – or are exploring new partnerships, even across regions – to improve care for kids closer to home, serve unmet needs or bridge gaps for adult health systems. Learn about emerging collaborative resource-sharing initiatives designed to help more kids benefit from expensive new treatment approaches from immunotherapy to rapid whole genome sequencing.
