Center for Innovation in Pediatric Practice
The mission of the Center for Innovation in Pediatric Practice is to improve the health of children and their families through research on novel methods for delivering health services in the community. These methods include new computer and information technologies as well as new statistical and communication techniques.
Despite tremendous growth in treatment and prevention research for children and adolescents, new interventions are rarely implemented in routine pediatric practice settings. This is especially true for children and adolescents affected by chronic medical and behavioral disorders where a lack of coordinated, timely and efficient care prevents optimal development for children and families.
