The Children’s Hospitals Neonatal Consortium is a quality outcome organization for neonatology leaders based in Level IV neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). The CHNC formed in 2006 and partnered with the Child Health Corporation of America (now Children’s Hospital Association (CHA)) to develop the Children’s Hospitals Neonatal Database (CHND) which was launched in 2010. From a 17 member institution collaborative in 2010, the CHND has grown to 34 participating sites in 2017. In 2017 the CHND transitioned from CHA to a new registry partner, Velos, however the goals of the consortium remain the same.
This document outlines the major milestones and accomplishments achieved through this collaboration and data analyses.
