LHS Collaboratory Project Teams

The LHS Collaboratory Project Teams are designed to allow interested individuals to come together to focus on real-world challenges that put the Learning Cycle into action to prevent or treat specific health problems of interest. 

Below is a brief description of the current project teams: 

  • Prevention of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) by Continuous Learning System Approaches:  Building upon robust surveillance systems that already exist and a foundation of work that is already underway, this project team will be focused on prediction analytics to generate individual, health system, and population level (geospatial) risk profiles, beginning with kidney disease. Based on the risk profiles, the project team will design & implement tailored messaging to each of these levels to raise awareness and motivate behavior change to prevent or mitigate kidney disease.  This project team is also engaged in planning a prospective 2020 international conference on NCD prevention.  Sign up

  • Developing a Community-Based Learning Health System: This project team proposes to develop, implement and evaluate a behavioral health Learning Cycle specifically focused on coordination of care and access to services.  In addition, this project team plans to launch an investigative, exploratory effort to identify and connect with others who are also working on similar Community LHS initiatives.  Sign up
