Abstract

Mortality after surgery for congenital heart disease (CHD) in Mexico is significantly higher than in high-income countries due to structural, medical, and financial factors. In Mexico, public hospitals have a large volume of patients but inadequate quality control systems, whereas private hospitals, although having higher quality control systems, have an insufficient number of patients to build programs of excellence. We describe the creation of a novel hybrid private-public program in Mexico that leverages the advantages of both sectors while establishing an integrated multidisciplinary unit that has allowed us to improve the quality of care for patients with CHD.
