Case studies feature Learning Health Systems
Baylor Scott & White Health is featured in AHRQ’s series of four real-world case studies that look at different aspects of learning health systems. Headquartered in Dallas, Baylor Scott & White Health has 48 hospitals and is the largest nonprofit healthcare system in Texas and one of the largest in the United States. An emphasis on preventive care has helped the system hold medical and pharmacy spending flat for the past five years. “A learning health system is one that can acquire data from day-to-day clinical operations to generate new insights that are then applied toward care improvement efforts,” says Andrew Masica, M.D., vice president and chief clinical effectiveness officer. AHRQ developed these case studies to help health system executives better understand what it takes to create a learning health system and highlight the value of making investments in transformation.
