Engineering a Learning Healthcare System: A Look at the Future: Workshop Summary.


Institute of Medicine (US) and National Academy of Engineering (US) Roundtable on Value & Science-Driven Health Care.


Washington (DC): National Academies Press (US); 2011.
The National Academies Collection: Reports funded by National Institutes of Health.


Engineering a Learning Healthcare System: A Look at the Future offers important insights to the field of medicine from the field of engineering concerning the development of a learning healthcare system. It also provides an example of how collaboration across diverse disciplines can lead to vast improvements in healthcare delivery. The hope is that, by making major stakeholders more aware of the importance of the delivery system, it will prompt the development of strategies for applying the insights from this workshop to health system improvements and that these strategies will ultimately transform the current healthcare system into one that smoothly operates to both generate and apply evidence to improve the health of Americans.
