Learning Health System

Monash Partners has recently developed a framework for evolving our health centres into a Learning Health System to capture, identify and address health service and community priorities and emergent challenges.

The Monash Partners Learning Health System presents an evidence-based framework to support a sustainable Learning Health System in the Translation Centre context and to encourage a network of Learning Health Systems in Australia.

The vision is ‘learning together for better health’.

It contains the necessary elements to enable routine health practice data, from service delivery and patient care, to contribute to iterative cycles of knowledge generation and improvement in healthcare, whereby the whole Learning Health System is enabled by partnerships across multidisciplinary stakeholders (academic, clinician, community and industry stakeholders).

Four principles underpin all aspects of the Learning Health System:

  • People
  • Culture
  • Standards, and
  • Resources/Infrastructure.

Four different sources of evidence are also vital:

  • Stakeholder’s evidence
  • Research evidence
  • Data evidence
  • Implementation evidence.

Both are represented diagramatically below.

Through this Learning Health System partnerships can be stimulated to utilise data to iteratively achieve better health outcomes and service improvements.
