Biography

Thomas Bartman, MD, PhD, completed his pediatric residency and neonatal-perinatal fellowship at The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). His postdoctoral research using zebrafish at UCSF’s Cardiovascular Research Institute discovered that biomechanical forces in the developing embryonic heart control later steps of structural development. He continued his research by founding the zebrafish research program at Cincinnati Children’s and authoring numerous peer reviewed publications and research studies. While at Cincinnati Children's he transitioned his focus from bench research to quality improvement, and came to Nationwide Children's in 2011 as Director of Quality Improvement for Neonatal Services. Since his arrival at Nationwide Children’s, Dr. Bartman led the development of a QI strategic plan for the neonatal service line which coordinates and focuses the QI efforts of hundreds of individuals in 9 NICUs with a combined 254 beds. These efforts are aligned with the Nationwide Children’s QI strategic plan, and occur in conjunction with local, state, and national collaboratives including the Vermont Oxford Network (VON), the Children’s Hospital Neonatal Consortium (CHNC), the Ohio Perinatal Quality Consortium (OPQC), the Neonatal Research Network (NRN), and Ohio Better Birth Outcomes (OBBO). In addition to the goal of eliminating preventable harm, the neonatal QI plan emphasizes bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), initial resuscitation of the newborn (Golden Hour), neurodevelopmental outcomes, and skin care. Outside of the neonatal service line, Dr. Bartman is an active leader in OBBO and the county-wide task force to reduce infant mortality, OPQC, and CHNC. He is also a core lecturer for the Nationwide Children’s Quality Improvement Essentials course. He has lectured on QI science at Levine Children's Hospital, UCLA, and the PAS meetings. In 2014, Dr. Bartman was appointed Associate Medical Director of Quality for Nationwide Children’s.
