The baby had a cardiac arrest and died a few hours later.

ISQua members don’t need telling that the task of improving healthcare is not a simple one. Evidence and experience from the work we’ve funded at the Health Foundation tells us it’s often fiendishly complex, requiring careful design, diligent execution, multiple cycles of testing and iteration, deep reserves of leadership energy and enthusiasm, and much more.
