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, in addition to simultaneously studying patient outcomes, PR-COIN pediatric rheumatologists will be able to better identify optimal treatment approaches.
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 due to such a small pediatric population and individual site resource constraints. Join other PR-COIN sites to share data and outcomes, receive details of best practices, learn Improvement Science methods, tools and techniques, and apply this valuable information to improve the care you provide.
