The PEDSnet Data Network comprises health and healthcare information from millions of children who reside in every state in the U.S. Data sources include electronic health records, health insurance claims, and child and parent surveys. The data come from 8 of the nation's largest pediatric health systems. Data from all types of encounters--including outpatient (primary care and specialty care), emergency department, surgical centers, and hospitals--are included. The Data Network includes patients with every type of pediatric disorder, and every pediatric specialty that provides services to children is represented.

Each institution extracts required data from its EHR and transforms it to a Common Data Model (CDM).
