PCHI Learning Health System Research

We are currently conducting a number of LHCC research studies.

Learning Health System Readiness Tool

Background

The learning health system seems to be a promising approach to reducing these gaps in health practices.

Indeed, this approach can permit a health system to continually:

  • Collect data on patients, clinician practices, and health manager practices
  • Evaluate and explain the needs of stakeholders, and gaps in practices
  • Provide evidence-based solutions for the improvement of healthcare access, coordination, continuity, and quality of healthcare

However, there is no tool for measuring the organizational readiness for the implementation of a learning health system.

Our Objective

To develop and evaluate the content validity of a tool to assess the organizational readiness for the implementation of a learning health system in care settings or in hospitals.
