Working together for a Learning Health System
Serving the Quebec health and social services network
We help institutions, organizations, decision-makers and human resources in health care, research and social services work differently (data management, data use, change management, working in partnerships) with a common objective: a Learning Health System in Quebec with a quadruple aim.
What is a Learning Health System (LHS)?
It’s integrating partnership and data science into health care and social services practices.
- It’s measuring, analyzing, applying…and measuring again!
- From practices to data
- From data to knowledge
- From knowledge to clinical and organizational practices
For a health system to continuously improve, it must repeat the learning cycle.
