FOUND IN: Events, Research Event


Thursday, September 17, 2020


9:00am - 11:00am


Zoom Webinar


Learning Health Systems (LHS) methods are now being implemented in interesting

and varying ways by academic health centers and their clinical and translational

science institutes across the country. According to the Agency for Healthcare

Research and Quality (AHRQ), the following are key attributes of Learning Health



  • Having leaders who are committed to a culture of continuous learning and


  • Systematically gathering and applying evidence in real-time to guide care
  • Employing IT methods to share new evidence with clinicians to improve decision-making
  • Promoting the inclusion of patients as vital members of the learning team
  • Capturing and analyzing data and care experiences to improve care
  • Continually assessing outcomes, refining processes and training to create a

feedback cycle for learning and improvement


The LHS Collaboratory’s fall seminar series virtual kick-off event will showcase the LHS

experiences of three research-intensive academic centers that have been promoting

LHS methods. We will be joined by distinguished senior colleagues from Duke,

Vanderbilt, and Washington University, who will describe and discuss their

institutions’ work in this area. They will discuss strategies employed, investments

made, challenges encountered, and successes achieved.
