Today’s health system fails to deliver the best possible outcomes. Research takes too long and costs too much, and opportunities to engage the participation and contribution by patients and families are not yet common. What if we could create a better care system by harnessing inherent motivation and collective intelligence of patients, clinicians and researchers? In every part of our lives, networks are having a profound effect. How could networked organizations accelerate progress towards Learning Health Systems? This talk will describe how several large-scale learning health system networks are eliminating the artificial barriers between clinical care, improvement and research while engaging all stakeholders as part of a single health system. The result is faster learning and better outcomes for large populations of patients.
