Digital Infrastructure for the Learning Health System: The Foundation for Continuous Improvement in Health and Health Care recaps presentations and discussions from the experts in computer science and health IT, health care delivery and administration, privacy, patient advocacy, and policy who participated in the workshops.
Participants flagged several priority areas that warrant follow up, including analyses of the potential health and economic returns, consensus on standards and quality measures, and consistent patient identification across the system.
IOM will host a meeting to discuss implications of the workshop discussions and next steps. The meeting will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon in Room 100 of the National Academies' Keck Center, 500 Fifth St., N.W., Washington, D.C. An agenda and registration are available online at http://www.iom.edu/Activities/Quality/VSRT/2011-MAY-23.aspx.
Copies of the workshop summary report will be available for immediate release at 9 a.m. Monday, May 23, at www.iom.edu/vsrt. The workshop series was convened by the IOM's Roundtable on Value and Science-Driven Health Care, with the support of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. As a summary of the discussions, the report presents the views and ideas of the workshop participants and does not contain recommendations or position statements from the IOM.

Chemical weathering of rocks over geological time scales is an important control on the stability of the climate. This weathering is, in turn, highly dependent...
Before the fluid of the middle ear drains and sound waves penetrate for the first time, the inner ear cells of newborn rodents practice for their big debut. Researchers at Johns Hopkins report they have figured out the molecular chain of events that enables the cells to make “sounds” on their own, essentially “practicing” their ability to process sounds in the world around them.
The researchers, who describe their experiments in the Dec. 3 edition of the journal Cell, show how hair cells in the inner ear can be activated in the absence...
Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.
Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...
The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE has installed 70 photovoltaic modules on the outer façade of one of its lab buildings. The modules were...
Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.
In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...
