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.

Ethical, Legal and Social Implications of Learning Health Systems (ELSI) joins the LHS Collaboratory

The LHS Collaboratory and ELSI will have a special session on June 21, 2022.  Register in advance to learn more about ELSI-LHS. The session will be moderated by, Jody E. Platt, MPH, PhD, Assistant Professor of Learning Health Sciences.

2022-2023 LHS Collaboratory Seminar Series

In contrast to the laborious and expensive process of generating genetic datasets de novo, academic genetic researchers are increasingly using large and inexpensive “secondary” research datasets held by government, consortia, and industry for their work. Choosing between different kinds of data providers is about more than just convenience, however, it can also have important implications for the kind of science advanced and to which communities it will generalize. This talk will explore the factors driving researchers to select certain datasets for their work as well as their experiences sharing to, as well as using, shared data resources. As researchers wait for the new National Institutes of Health’s “Policy for Data Management and Sharing” to go into effect in January 2023, this talk will explore who ultimately carries the burden of increasing data sharing requirements

LHS Collaboratory February Joint Session with UM School of Dentistry

Tuesday, February 21, 2023

12:00 pm-1:15 pm  ET (Keynote)

Virtual via Zoom

The keynote presentation (12:00 pm-1:15 pm ET) will be followed by breakout rooms (1:30 pm-2:15 pm ET) on topics presented by the UM faculty and guests.

Breakout room #1: Data Integration and Sharing: Opportunities in Entrepreneurship and Research

  • Join this session if you are interested in learning what is being developed to support next-generation dentistry, both from an innovative research perspective and an entrepreneur/industry perspective.

Breakout room # 2    Data Integration and Sharing in/out of the Clinic: New Medical and Dental technologies and LHS methods to optimize care

Attend this session if you are interested in new health technologies and methods integrating dental and medical care, especially pain. It will provide data sciences and learning health system perspectives on patient care and its optimization.

Breakout room #3: Data Integration and Sharing in Imaging and Pharmacogenetics

This session will focus on novel approaches in Multimodal Imaging Data Integration and Sharing, especially in TMD, and the implementation of Pharmacogenetics Data in the Dental and Medical clinics.
