FOLLOW UP: AAP NCE 2012 -- SOTM Quality
Metrics Summit -- Modified Delphi Survey Results

We had an incredibly successful Section Program and Course
in 2012. Thank you to all who participated. After discussion and
completion of Round 2 voting with over 100 participants from all
over the US (and several from other countries as well), we are
happy to present to you the final list of consensus metrics.
These 12 metrics were voted "very important," must-have-
metrics for Neonatal/Pediatric Transport by AT LEAST 70% of
the participants.

The definitions that accompany each are DRAFTS ONLY and
will be modified in response to feedback we receive. Keep
checking back to see progress on this front. We are also
working on a manuscript detailing the entire Quality Metrics
