A person-centered, registry-based learning health system for palliative care: a path to coproducing better outcomes, experience, value, and science.
In this paper, the authors discuss measurement of the impact of palliative care, which is critical for determining what works for which patients in what settings, to learn, improve care, and ensure access to high value care for people with serious illness. The authors described an approach to codesigning and implementing a palliative care registry that functions as a learning health system, by combining patient and family inputs and clinical data to support person-centered care, quality improvement, accountability, transparency, and scientific research.
