Learning Health System Collaboratory

About the Collaboratory

LHS Collaboratory Workgroup from April

The University of Michigan’s Department of Learning Health Sciences convenes the LHS Collaboratory: a hub for advancing interdisciplinary research and development of learning health systems at the University of Michigan in partnership with the Office of Research, the Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation (IHPI), and the Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR).

Through collaboration, we are strengthening U-M’s opportunities for federal funding along with attracting foundations and donors for additional opportunities.

The LHS Collaboratory’s approach to improving individual and population health will make U-M a leader in the national and international movements to achieve learning health systems at organizational, regional, and national scales.

Upcoming Events

Data Standards and Learning Health Systems–Challenges and Opportunities

Thursday, January 21, 2021
11:30 am - 1 pm EDT
Virtual Event via Zoom

Learning Health Systems thrive with use of real-world data from electronic health record (EHR) systems in both observational and interventional research to generate real-world evidence. Standardized EHR data can enable the aggregation of data and the generation of real-world evidence that will inform care delivery and improve patient outcomes. Data standards can also increase the speed in which promising evidence-based interventions are disseminated and adopted into new settings. However, despite their great potential, data standards have proven to be difficult and costly to implement, and nationally standardized EHR data continues to elude us.

Dr. Richesson will provide an overview of various data standards and implementation approaches, highlighting historical challenges and success stories. Further, she will share some principles around selecting and implementing data standards to support research and learning health system activities, and describe her planned standards consultation service as part of MICHR.

This session may be of particular value to those aspiring to develop and participate in national collaborations to improve understanding of health and quality health care, or those who want to build a LHS data infrastructure in their specialty areas to support ongoing health care improvement and research activities.

Attendees are encouraged to submit questions in advance or prepare to share specific LHS ideas and challenges for a live and interactive standards consult session and discussion after the formal presentation.
