The PICU CLOUD (Collaborative Learning through Outcomes Data) is a consortium of Pediatric Intensive Care Unit's seeking to compare quality measures and outcomes. Each of the participating institutions is a world-renowned acute care pediatric hospital, conducting pediatric research, tertiary pediatric care, and education. These ICUs admit both medical and surgical patients


Established in 2014 under the leadership of Joseph Cravero from Boston Children’s Hospital, SPAIN is a multi-institutional collaborative developed with the goal of systematically documenting the perioperative care and outcomes in children undergoing surgical procedures where anesthetic or pain management approaches are variable.  The group’s inaugural project was a two-year investigation of the management strategies and outcomes for patients undergoing minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum (MIRPE).  


A group of passionate individuals from more than 51 hospitals across 21 states and 2 countries, working together to improve care for patients undergoing surgery.  Our members include clinicians, quality improvement experts, software developers, statisticians, researchers, and administrators. Over the last decade, we have built a comprehensive perioperative patient registry based on electronic healthcare data to improve quality of care, conduct research, educate caregivers and guide healthcare administration.


NIH Dissemination & Implementation (D&I) Research

The NIH supports dissemination and implementation (D&I) research on how evidence-based practices, interventions, and policies are effectively translated to and used in real-world settings like hospitals, schools, and communities.


Pediatric Difficult Intubation (PeDI) Registry group is a multicenter organization of anesthesiology departments dedicated to assessing, understanding and improving the outcomes of children with Difficult Direct Laryngoscopy (DDL) to facilitate benchmarking, quality improvement and research. The objectives of the group are (1) to provide site specific and aggregate data back to sites on DDL events and (2) to augment local quality improvement efforts and (3) to facilitate research studies related to DDL.
