Transitioning from learning healthcare systems to learning health care communities.
The learning healthcare system (LHS) model framework has three core, foundational components. These include an infrastructure for health-related data capture, care improvement targets and a supportive policy environment. This paper discusses transitioning from learning healthcare systems to learning healthcare communities.

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.

Framework to guide the collection and use of patient-reported outcome measures in the learning healthcare system.
Web-based collection of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in clinical practice is expanding rapidly as electronic health records include web portals for patients to report standardized assessments of their symptoms. As the value of PROMs in patient care expands, a framework to guide the implementation planning, collection, and use of PROs to serve multiple goals and stakeholders is needed. In this study, researchers identified diverse clinical, quality, and research settings where PROMs have been successfully integrated into care and routinely collected and analyzed drivers of successful implementation.
