Learning Health System Collaboratory

About the Collaboratory

The University of Michigan’s Department of Learning Health Sciences partners with the Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation and the Office of Research to convene the LHS Collaboratory: a hub for advancing interdisciplinary research and development of learning health systems at the University of Michigan. 

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.
