The Institute of Medicine (IOM) defines efficiency as avoiding waste, including waste of equipment, supplies, ideas and energy. By being efficient, we avoid contributing to the high cost of healthcare in the U.S.
One example of an efficiency measure is making sure that a child stays in the hospital for the right length of time, but no longer than necessary. Another example includes making sure that a child does not have to be readmitted to the hospital within a short period of time, which indicates that the child may have been discharged too soon.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
