PEDSnet is a pediatric learning health system dedicated to discovering and implementing new ways of providing the best care and improving health care outcomes. It is a multi-specialty network that conducts observational research and clinical trials across multiple children's hospital health systems. We are governed by parents and senior leaders in these health systems. PEDSnet has produced reusable and expandable governance, logistical, informatics, regulatory, scientific, and training resources, organized as a Pediatric Research Commons. Across its 8 founding institutions, PEDSnet has created a longitudinal data resource that dates back to 2009, cutting across all pediatric diseases, and including all pediatric specialties.
Seattle Children’s hospital has been a founding member of PEDSnet since 2014.
PEDSnet was launched with funding from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
