Learning Health System Collaboratory

About the Collaboratory

LHS Collaboratory Workgroup from April

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.

Healthcare and health remain unconscionably inequitable. This year, the disproportionate toll the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on those historically least well-served by our health system, has highlighted the pressing societal challenge of health disparities.

Beyond simply striving to do no harm, Learning Health Systems (LHSs) have the potential to serve as forces for justice in healthcare and health; indeed, they can be powerful drivers of diversity, equity, and inclusion. LHSs are anchored in multi-stakeholder consensus Core Values that explicitly incorporate principles such as inclusiveness, transparency, and accessibility. Their proximal goal is "to efficiently and equitably serve the learning needs of all participants, as well as the overall public good."

The October 2020 LHS Collaboratory will share lessons from health advocates working on the frontlines to make healthcare and health more equitable. These thought leaders and do-ers will illuminate the transformative power of LHSs - and the diverse and inclusive communities of interest that are collaborating to realize them.
