Kaiser Permanente Washington’s Learning Health System (LHS) Program is a formal collaboration that connects our health system, medical group, and research institute. By linking the scientific expertise of our researchers to the needs and priorities of our care delivery system, the LHS Program supports continuous learning and helps us work together to find new and better ways to improve our services and members' health.
Our work is based on forging strong partnerships among our scientists, clinicians, and operational managers—so we can take rapid action to implement best practices and evaluate their impact. To date, more than 30 researchers from across Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute (KPWHRI) are collaborating with partners in our care delivery system on dozens of projects aimed at helping us ensure Kaiser Permanente Washington is the best place in our region to give and get health care,
One year in, leaders of Kaiser Permanente Washington’s Learning Health System Program describe how research-care delivery partnerships drive continuous learning.
