The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has released a new report, Integrating Research and Practice: Health System Leaders Working Toward High-Value Care: Workshop Summary. The report summarizes the presentations and discussions from two meetings held in April and June 2014 by the IOM’s Roundtable on Value & Science-Driven Health Care, with sponsorship from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
The workshops brought together health system leaders and researchers to discuss partnerships for progress toward a learning healthcare system in which the continuous generation of knowledge informs better care. Attendees identified challenges and established priorities in integrating clinical research into healthcare delivery systems. There was a particular focus on the recently established National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network (PCORnet).
