A learning health network for pediatric liver transplantation: Inaugural meeting report from the Starzl Network for Excellence in Pediatric Transplantation.

Learning Health Networks (LHN) improve the well-being of populations by aligning clinical care specialists, technology experts, patients and patient advocates, and other thought leaders for continuous improvement and seamless care delivery. A novel LHN focused on pediatric transplantation, the Starzl Network for Excellence in Pediatric Transplantation (SNEPT), convened its inaugural meeting in September 2018. Clinical care team representatives, patients, and patient families/advocates partnered to take part in educational sessions, pain point exercises, and project identification workshops. Participants discussed the global impact of transplant from both a population and individual perspective, identifying challenges and opportunities where the Starzl Network could work to improve outcomes at scale across a variety of transplant-related conditions.
