Neonatal encephalopathy (NE) continues to be a signiﬁcant risk for death and disability. To address this risk, regional guidelines and a neonatal encephalopathy registry were developed with the support of CRICO and its Academic Medical Center Patient Safety Organization.
This CRICO-funded study, published in the Pediatric Research journal, helped to demonstrate that a registry can reduce variations in practice in the treatment of NE and hasten the adoption of quality improvement interventions. The tools used in the study have been made publicly available to replicate this project.
