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.
