Leadership Commitments to Improve Value in Health Care: Finding Common Ground

A Learning Healthcare System Series Workshop

Institute of Medicine Roundtable on Evidence-Based Medicine

 

Goals:

  1. Identify ways that major healthcare stakeholder sectors can contribute to transformative progress toward a learning healthcare system and achievement of the Evidence-Based Medicine Roundtable goal that 90 percent of clinical decisions will, by 2020, reflect and be supported by accurate, timely, and up-to-date evidence.

  2. Outline, from the perspective of the major healthcare sectors, some immediate opportunities and steps that can be taken within each sector, as well as among sectors, and propose approaches to taking those steps.

  3. Through focused discussion around specific crosscutting issues, develop suggestions for collective efforts—through the Roundtable and beyond—to support the highest-priority transformational initiatives.
