Center for Research, Education, Quality and Safety

The Pediatrix Center for Research, Education, Quality and Safety (CREQS) empowers health care providers to Take great care of the patient, every day and in every way.

As part of our ongoing commitment to improving patient care through evidence-based medicine, we engage in clinical research, education, continuous quality-improvement and safety initiatives. Our efforts contribute to better patient outcomes and reduced long-term health system costs, not only for our patients and hospital partners, but for all patients and providers across our specialty areas.

Through ongoing investments in clinical and operational services, technology and education, we give our clinicians the tools and support they require to meet the needs of patients and hospital partners, today and in the future.

Quality Improvement

Clinical Quality improvement initiatives provide the framework used to systematically improve care. Pediatrix actively engages in numerous CQI projects every year.


Safety is one of the cornerstones of our success and helps us fulfill our mission. Our team of clinical specialists leads and provides oversight for several national safety programs in various subspecialties.

Research Advisory Committee (RAC)

Pediatrix established a Research Advisory Committee (RAC) to help facilitate and support research efforts.

The goal of the RAC is to design, implement and maintain a program for clinical research oversight and support that enables our practices to conduct research that is safe, effective, financially viable and legally compliant, while optimizing research opportunities. The RAC’s multidisciplinary approach involves the collaboration of both clinical and business professionals, including finance, legal and compliance experts, and has ultimately enhanced our research efforts and improved overall process flow.

With participating clinicians located throughout the country, the RAC supports a comprehensive scope of research efforts, allowing for a more in-depth look at our specialties. This nationwide perspective allows us to better anticipate future needs and opportunities.
