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 consen-
sus 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 work-
ing on a manuscript detailing the entire Quality Metrics Summit.
