Over the next 18 months, a grant from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), a federally funded nonprofit, will help connect Seattle Children’s with seven other pediatric hospitals to create a national network of patient data. The aim is not only to help find better treatments for children but to make it easier for researchers to enroll patients in studies and speed up research projects.
