What is PECARN's goal?

How is PECARN organized? 

The PECARN network consists of a coordinating data center, several Research Node Centers (RNCs), and several Hospital Emergency Department Affiliates (HEDAs) and EMS Agencies that represent academic, community, urban, rural, general, and children's hospitals.
