SuperCare Health is helping to advance the quality of pediatric care through partnerships in the SuperKIDS Collaborative. We are working with leading pediatric hospitals thoughout the country to pull together experts in pediatric healthcare who share their experiences and best practices so that no child is left behind. Our inaugural Collaborative with UC Davis was an exciting kick-off to a nationwide campaign that looks to connect childrens hospitals and pediatric programs in other hospitals throughout the U.S.
For 2019, we plan to provide at least three to four
educational forums where leaders in the field of respiratory management for
pediatric patients will be able to share their knowledge and experience with
current health care providers. Some forums will provide continuing education
credits to health care providers who attend and is sure to be a time of
learning, advancement and open dialogue. Everyone who comes will learn
something new to take back to his or her health care practice for the
betterment of pediatric populations. Whether providers work in hospitals, acute
care clinics or home health, these topics can provide information they can use to
improve the quality of pediatric healthcare today.
SuperCare Health has always been dedicated to using best care practices to improve the respiratory health of all ages. However, the pediatric population is an important one because children go through so many important milestones and health changes in the early years of their lives. Health management for children is ever-changing and should be based on current research, health care standards and patient and family engagement.
Our first SuperKIDS Collaborative event was on the evening of February 19 at UC Davis Children’s Hospital and focused on high flow nasal cannulas and humidity. Future events are sure to cover other solutions in the acute and chronic care of pediatric populations. At each event, attendees will hear case studies from experts in the pediatric community, will hear about new technologies and treatments and will have the ability to interact with these experts by asking questions in a forum-style format. Nationally recognized organizations take part in these events to provide more information about best care practices, case studies and new techniques or procedures.
We invite healthcare professionals from the pediatric community and support networking among colleagues who are all working for the same goals. By actively communicating about what has worked in the past, by learning what is now available, and by sharing common concerns and goals, attendees can enjoy the benefits of these collaboratives from the collective knowledge of colleagues.

SuperKIDS is just one part of SuperCare Health. SuperCare Health provides a variety of respiratory therapies for in-home care as well as multiple methods of case management designed to keep individuals out of the hospital and progressing in their care at home. SuperCare offers telehealth and remote monitoring for patients as well as unique therapies for pediatric patients. The SuperKIDS program is designed for the respiratory management of children with chronic conditions. Its goal is to reduce respiratory-based hospitalizations, improve hospital discharge times and generally improve the quality of life of these children. The program includes in-home therapy equipment, full support from an Interdisciplinary Respiratory Care Team and high-tech tools to improve patient/clinician interaction.
The event at UC Davis was the first of many similar events aimed at helping young patients see improved respiratory health, fewer hospital admissions and earlier discharge when they are admitted.
