The concept of Learning Health Systems (LHSs) has recently been applied in realizing diverse types of clinical research networks, including PCORnet, PEDSnet, and CancerLinQ, among myriad others. Many of these modern networks work to generate real-world data (RWD) and use machine learning (ML) to create real-world evidence (RWE) for improving patient care. In this LHS Tech Forum, Dr. Yuri Quintana from Harvard Medical School will share his experience in building collaborative clinical networks around the world to improve clinical practices, patient care, and health outcomes. Dr. Carl de Moor from Biogen will present his pharma perspectives of running RWD research networks globally for multiple sclerosis care. Following the two presentations, we will engage the audience to discuss the promises as well as challenges of transforming clinical research networks to LHSs.

The Learning Health Community’s LHS Tech Forum works to bring together industry innovators and academic researchers to discuss LHS technologies and practices. For more information and the past forums, please visit the Learning Health Community’s LHS Tech Forum Initiative.
