THE LEARNING HEALTHCARE SYSTEM


A WORKSHOP OF THE IOM ROUNDTABLE ON EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE

THE KECK CENTER OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMIES

WASHINGTON, DC 20001


JULY 20-21, 2006

MEETING AGENDA


OBJECTIVE: To characterize the key features of the Learning Healthcare System, to identify the most important hindrances to its evolution, and to posit some remedies.

DAY 1: THE LEARNING HEALTHCARE SYSTEM

8:30

WELCOME AND OPENING REMARKS

 

Harvey Fineberg, Institute of Medicine

 

Darrell Kirch, Association of American Medical Colleges

What would be the features of a healthcare system designed not to learn—how might it be corrected?

9:00

SESSION 1: HINTS OF A DIFFERENT WAY—LEARNING FROM EXPERIENCE CASE STUDIES IN PRACTICE-BASED EVIDENCE DEVELOPMENT

 

CHAIR: Carolyn Clancy, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and EBM Roundtable Member

What “best practices” might be spotlighted to illustrate ways to use the health care experience as a practical means of both generating and applying evidence for health care? Are there lessons from certain examples that can help identify the most promising approaches?

How can alternatives to randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and innovative approaches to generating evidence be used to confront emerging challenges: broader post-marketing surveillance; linking Phase III and coverage requirements; increasingly complex patterns of comorbidity; subgroup analysis, and heterogeneity in treatment outcomes? How might learning that is more nimble also foster innovation and discovery? 15-minute presentations followed by discussion session Robert Califf, Duke Clinical Research Institute Alternatives to large RCTs David Goldstein, Duke Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy Engaging the implications of subgroup heterogeneity— prospects for pharmacogenetics Harlan Weisman, Johnson & Johnson Broader post-marketing surveillance for insights on risk and effectiveness Telba Irony, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Evaluating interventions in a rapid state of flux David Eddy, Archimedes Inc.
