Pediatric Research in Inpatient Settings Network


Improve the health of and healthcare delivery to hospitalized children and their families


We will:

  • Conduct ourselves with honesty, integrity, and transparency
  • Encourage creativity and foster mentorship
  • Ensure healthcare for all hospitalized children is based on high quality evidence
  • Determine and disseminate best practices that optimize health outcomes and value


PRIS will be the premier research network and continually define what best practice is and how it should be implemented.

Clinicians will first turn to PRIS studies when confronted with decisions regarding hospitalized children… these studies will be informative, and relevant, and address real-world systems-based and clinical management decisions for hospitalized children with acute and chronic conditions…ideal implementation of the results of comparative effectiveness and other patient-centered outcome studies will lead to better outcomes and value for hospitalized children and their families.
