Learning Health Systems (LHS) and What They Mean to You (Part 1 of 2)

The knowledge transfer time from bench to bedside is about 17 years, resulting in delayed adoption of innovative best practices. The proliferation of clinical knowledge challenges the medical community to manage the clinical knowledge, refine current practices based on best scientific outcomes and provide "best practice" interventions to patients.

Actions to be taken by Risk Managers to support the LHS are reviewed. Judith R. Sands
