Indiana University School of Medicine, IU Health, and the Regenstrief Institute are seeking applicants for The Learning Health System (LHS) Young Investigator Awards. These awards aim to train faculty to improve patient care and health system operations through the systematic generation, adoption and application of evidence. Clinicians and health system leaders work together to ensure that evidence is updated, disseminated to clinical teams and communicated to patients in ways that support shared decision making. Learning health systems are essential as the health care landscape becomes increasingly characterized by rich sources of information that are available in digital formats, programs, and applications.
As a new LHS Center of Excellence funded under an initiative from AHRQ/PCORI, this program will produce the next generation of LHS researchers to conduct patient-centered outcomes research and implement the results to improve quality of care and patient outcomes. Newly trained clinician and research scientists will work within health systems by collaborating with systems’ leaders and conducting studies to address how healthcare organizations can improve patient outcomes.
