Volume 2, Issue 2 (2014) Sustaining the Effective Use of Health Care Data
A Message from the Guest Editor
Over the last few years, investment from care organizations, research institutes, and a significant one-time investment from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) has created new infrastructure that leverages the use of electronic health data (particularly from electronic health records) to build “learning systems”. Developing sustainable business models to support ongoing maintenance and growth of these types of networks is now one of the most critical goals for these transformative projects. Concrete case examples of business models, lessons learned, and original research are needed to facilitate a broader conversation of promising practices.
This special issue shares the experiences and perspectives of a range of project leaders and stakeholders, and present ways decision makers can apply lessons learned to improve project sustainability.
Accepted manuscripts will be posted starting June 2014.
