Convened in 2022, the AAHC President’s Council* on the Learning Health System focused on concerns at the level of the most senior leaders of academic health centers, such as delineating the leadership role of the academic health center in establishing and maintaining a learning health system, determining what questions a top leader should ask their direct reports to track the progress of a learning health system, and delineating the benefits and risks associated with a learning health system for an academic health center.
The members of the council met via various forums throughout the year to examine learning health systems at academic health centers and to develop resources that may include:
- An inventory of innovative learning health system models.
- A key considerations document to guide leadership in tracking the progress of a learning health system.
- An interactive and engaging session for members at the Alliance annual meeting and the AAHCI Global Innovation Forum.
- A curated and annotated collection of relevant key readings.
- Other materials as deemed important by the council.
*Prior to the Association of Academic Health Centers (AAHC)--AAMC merger in 2022, the councils were known as the AAHC President’s Councils.
