Working together to improve critical outcomes for all
pediatric and congenital heart failure patients.

ACTION is the Advanced Cardiac Therapies Improving Outcomes Network.
We unite providers and families, share data and outcomes transparently,
improve education and standardize best practices in a effort to drive improvement
in areas that are often untouched by clinical trials alone.

The ACTION learning network's current focus is on improving outcomes
for pediatric ventricular assist device (VAD) patients. 

This Heart Failure / VAD learning network approach allows us to make critical improvements
faster across a collaborative system of providers, patients, families, and researchers.
