Request for Information—Learning Healthcare Systems

AHRQ has posted a Request for Information to gather feedback from health care organizations about current challenges and solutions to improve patient care by expanding and building on the use of evidence or becoming learning health care systems. As defined by the National Academy of Medicine, learning health care systems are "designed to generate and apply the best evidence for the collaborative health care choices of each patient and provider; drive the process of discovery as a natural outgrowth of patient care; and to ensure innovation, quality, safety, and value in health care."

The deadline for submitting feedback is February 28.

AHRQ will use the information in future initiatives, such as developing research grant opportunities, investing in the creation of tools and training materials for health professionals and health care delivery organizations, developing quality improvement measures, and/or convening collaboratives focused on accelerating the development of learning health care systems.
