Learning Health Systems, Big Data Key to Improving Outcomes
October 10, 2018 / Jessica Kent
Healthcare organizations looking to quickly translate research into best practices for clinical care should focus on transforming themselves into learning health systems that rely heavily on insights from big data analytics, says Peter Embi, MD, President and CEO of Regenstrief Institute. In a learning health system, clinicians and leaders work together to identify actionable insights and communicate data to patients in ways that support shared decision-making. Regenstrief Institute, in collaboration with the Indiana University School of Medicine, has received a $3.4 million grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to train the next generation of learning health system researchers.
