Taking a practical approach to creating Learning Healthcare Systems

26 Nov 2015

How do you use research and innovation to create a new kind of ‘learning healthcare system’?

Dr. Robert Reid will discuss a vision for such a system and describe a practical approach to embedding health services research into day-to-day healthcare operations at a CHEPA seminar on Weds Dec 2.

The seminar, Learning Healthcare Systems: a Practical Approach will include several examples and Reid will also discuss key challenges and potential solutions.

Reid is Chief Scientist of the Institute for Better Health at Trillium Health Partners (THP), where he is charged with using research and innovation to help THP build a new kind of health care, leading to a healthier community.

He holds a medical degree from the University of Alberta; a master of public health degree in epidemiology, and a doctorate of health policy and management from the Johns Hopkins University.

He is internationally recognized for his research developing and testing population-based innovations in primary care delivery, prevention services and chronic care, including developing and evaluating Group Health Cooperatives’ pioneering patient-centred medical home in Seattle, Washington, which coordinated and streamlined team-based care to improve quality, patient experience and yield cost savings.

In addition to his position at the Institute for Better Health, Reid is a professor at the University of Toronto’s Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation.

He also holds appointments as affiliate investigator at Group Health Research Institute, adjunct professor at the University of British Columbia’s School of Population and Public Health and affiliate associate professor at the University of Washington’s School of Public Health and Community Medicine.

The seminar will be held on Weds. Dec. 2 from  12:30 to 1:30 in CRLB-119. All are welcome. The seminar will be available remotely for those unable to attend.
