Abstract

A learning healthcare system has emerged as a means of addressing the need to move evidence to the bedside in a manner that is meaningful and efficacious. The advent of electronic healthcare records has translated to massive quantities of clinical data; a learning healthcare system coupled with locally derived clinical rules will push practice-based evidence to the point of care where its application will mean improved quality and patient outcomes.
