"This information can help Boston Children’s Hospital continue to set a high standard of care for children."

"VitalHealth is delighted that they have selected our QuestLink solution to help them gather important outcomes information.

"This information can help Boston Children’s Hospital continue to set a high standard of care for children and help disseminate best practices around the world."

Starting in October, Boston Children’s Hospital will implement QuestLink, making it the first children’s hospital in the US to collect ICHOM standard sets electronically.

ICHOM Implementation vice-president Jessica Aisenbrey said: "Measuring the outcomes of children treated for cleft lip and palate will allow Boston Children’s Hospital to improve upon the care they offer and, in time, to compare their outcomes with those delivered by other organisations around the world.

"We are pleased that Boston Children’s will collect the cleft lip and palate standard set using QuestLink, one of our certified suppliers."
