PR-COIN is a multicenter “Learning Network” serving a vital role in efficiently improving how member teams deliver care to children with rheumatic disease by:
- applying elements of care interventions that have been proven in treatment of other chronic illness,
- facilitating identification of best practices in care for quality improvement,
- diffusing this knowledge across care providers, and
- supporting local adoption of relevant best practices.
By systematically recording and tracking how patients are being treated, pooling data, as well as simultaneously studying patient outcomes, PR-COIN pediatric rheumatologists will be able to better understand which treatment approaches are optimal.
The PR-COIN Story
Networks harness the collective will, intelligence and experience of patients and practices. Combining learning and data is particularly important in JIA because of the small numbers of patients and resource constraints at any one site. Join with the other PR-COIN sites to share data and outcomes, received details of best practices, learn Improvement Science methods, tools and techniques, and apply this valuable information to improve the care you provide.
