The Learning Health System model emphasizes a collaborative approach to utilizing data and health information technology (HIT) for insights across boundaries to drive higher quality, more efficient, evidence-based clinical practice and patient care. As community health centers enter a new era of payment reform and quality-based incentives in healthcare, clinician and patient engagement will be paramount in achieving strategies that drive better health and financial outcomes. This workshop will explore lessons learned and best practices of motivating CHC clinician engagement in successful utilization of evidence and HIT infrastructure to advance research, engage patients, and improve clinical care._x000D_
Presenters will explore the potential of CHCs to create a sustainable, learning healthcare system that delivers comprehensive care to people in a timely fashion and captures results and outcomes to inform quality improvement strategies. CHCs that engage clinicians in embracing the learning health system model in turn can support new methods of clinical research and data analysis. HIT can be further leveraged to manage and communicate data to guide decisions made at multiple levels including: health systems, providers, patients and families, and the broader ecosystem of stakeholders in health including social services and community-based organizations.
Explore the principles of a Learning Health System and the significance for CHCs.
Develop strategies for CHCs to engage clinicians in the Learning Health System model.
Understand the financial and health benefits tied to leveraging HIT in CHCs.
