JMIR Medical Informatics | The Science of Learning Health Systems

JMIR Publications recently published “The Science of Learning Health Systems: Scoping Review of Empirical Research” in JMIR Medical Informatics which reported that the development and adoption of a Learning Health System (LHS) has been proposed as a means to address key challenges facing current and future health care systems. Learning Health Systems (LHS) is a concept that seeks to connect a myriad of data and knowledge with clinicians, families, and the patient themselves in a highly sophisticated way that fully supports informed decision making, and forms a continuous cycle of improvement.
