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.

On June 23, the second Sentinel mission was launched from the space mission launch center in Kourou. A critical component of Aachen is on board. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT and Tesat-Spacecom have jointly developed the know-how for space-qualified laser components. For the Sentinel mission the diode laser pump module of the Laser Communication Terminal LCT was planned and constructed in Aachen in cooperation with the manufacturer of the LCT, Tesat-Spacecom, and the Ferdinand Braun Institute.
After eight years of preparation, in the early morning of June 23 the time had come: in Kourou in French Guiana, the European Space Agency launched the...
