Volume 2, Issue 3 (2014) Lessons from the Field: Health IT-Enabled Community-Based Transformation


A Message from the Guest Editors


Unprecedented efforts to drive improvement in health care and reduce costs using health information technology (Health IT) are underway at the national, state, and community level. Given the complexity of these efforts and the rapid pace of development and change, those involved are often in a position of breaking new ground.

With support from the Commonwealth Fund, AcademyHealth’s Beacon Evidence and Innovation Network has sponsored this special issue to capture important insights and lessons from these efforts so that others can learn from their experiences. Publications emphasize ways to share, integrate and use new data sources, including but not limited to electronic clinical data from EHRs or patient generated data from mobile devices or applications.

Accepted publications will be posted starting July 2014.
