The mission of PRIS is to improve the health of and healthcare delivery to hospitalized children and their families. This will be done by conducting large, multi-institutional studies in areas of inpatient pediatric care that are relevant to clinicians and the decisions they face when caring for children and their families in everyday clinical practice.
PRIS is a pediatric hospitalist research network. Hospitalists are physicians whose clinical practice is the care of hospitalized patients. Hospitalists are hospital-based physicians who want to ensure the system is delivering the highest quality of care for patients. The PRIS Network has a vision to be the premier research network and continually define what best practice is and how it should be implemented.
