As CEO of Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital, Mitch Edgeworth is confronted with many opportunities to improve the operation of the hospital and in some instances implement transformative innovations. In fact, Mitch and Vanderbilt University Medical Center embrace the concept of The Learning Health System. In a Learning Health System some of the same methods that are employed in improving medicine are applied to the delivery of care.
With a focus on improving the patient experience and reducing readmissions, Mitch considered making a significant investment in hiring nurses to contact patients following discharge. Working with Dr. Gordon Bernard, Associate Vice-Chancellor for Research and Senior Associate Dean for Clinical Science, Mitch decided to do a study of the impact of follow-up calls on readmissions. Join us to learn about The Learning Health System and the surprising findings of this study.
The Learning Health System is a practical forum and organizational culture that brings together leadership from Operations and Research for developing ideas and reviewing the results of studies that are aligned with organizational goals. Central to the platform is the notion that systematic investigation of practice change can raise the quality of evidence that can transform real world health care.
