Creating Rapid-learning Health Systems in Canada

 
Most Canadian health systems have both a health system and a research system that are increasingly putting patients and rapid learning and improvement at their centre. This report is meant to start a conversation about how the framework and concepts can be adapted, piloted and iteratively revised within and across Canadian jurisdictions.
Creating rapid-learning health systems offers the potential to: 1) ‘move the dial’ for patients in their experiences and outcomes in rapid-improvement cycles; 2) enable data- and evidence-informed transformations at all levels of a health system; 3) motivate greater collaboration among, and enable greater impacts of (and returns on investments in), all elements of the research system; and 4) better leverage quality-improvement and other learning and improvement infrastructures operating at the interface between the health and research systems.
