What patients and families need to know
Pediatric Critical Care Outcomes Research Initiative
The overarching goal of the Pediatric Critical Care Outcomes Research Initiative (PC-CORI) is to develop a dynamic assessment of risk suitable for use in individual hospitalized patients. The effort is focused on using big data from the Health Facts® database with over 50 million patient encounters. The initiative combines the clinical expertise of critical care medicine, the biostatical expertise of the Children’s National Division of Biostatistics and Study Methodology, the data sciences expertise of the George Washington University Biomedical Informatics Center and computer and data management expertise of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children's National (CTSI–CN) and the George Washington University. Other goals of the initiative include:
- Investigation of medication use and medication complications
- Identification of previously undefined clinical states important for outcome prediction
- Long-term goal of making big data available to the Children’s National and GW community
The initiative is funded from support of Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals.
