Opportunities and Challenges of Learning Health Systems
A Learning Health System (LHS) is a novel health informatics paradigm that blends quality improvement methods with data science. The goal is to create an integrated health system, harnessing routinely collected health data to derive insights that are fed back to clinicians, patients, and other stakeholders to create cycles of continuous improvement. The presentation demonstrates how the Connected Health Cities initiative has adopted the LHS methodology in the search for solutions to pressing healthcare problems in the North of England.
