Who We Are
Virtual Pediatric Systems, LLC (“VPS”) has grown from a small group of intensivists to a national organization with over 135 hospital units and over 1 million patient admission records (of which over 130,000 are Cardiac specific). The data base is the largest collaborative for quality improvement based on severity of illness adjusted comparisons of actual, detailed patient records in critical care.
This unique achievement allows VPS to provide state of the art quality reports that are detailed, actionable and comprehensive for practitioners and hospital administrations. VPS has improved the quality of critical care, built the largest national research collaborative, supported the publication of over 125 papers and contributed to saving hundreds of thousands of children’s lives.
In the future, VPS is ideally situated to expand from providing quality assessments to providing decision support, detailed outcomes tracking, discovery and prediction of adverse events and truly effective comparative effectiveness research on hundreds of thousands of critically ill children. This will be achieved on top of VPS’s already successful and vibrant critical care network by adding automated data collection and sophisticated data analysis being pioneered by researchers developing an advanced computational framework for decision support in critically ill children.
