Establishing and Supporting Learning Health Systems
In partnership with the International Society for Quality (ISQua), The Dartmouth Institute and the International Coproduction of Health Network (ICoHN) are developing and leading international learning tracks for further study of the coproduction of healthcare service. One track provides an “Interactive Discovery-based” series and another provides an open “Presentation-focused” education series. These education sessions are available to international health professionals.
Project Leaders: Tina Foster, Aricca van Citters, Gene Nelson, Julie Johnson, Paul Batalden

Dissemination of Learning Health Systems for Coproducing Effective Action
The goal of this project is to build the capacity of healthcare stakeholders to design, develop, implement, and scale Learning Health Systems for Coproducing Effective Action. This project will create the infrastructure and resources to support a learning infrastructure, technical support, and evaluation model. It will also build stakeholder capacity to extend the approach to vulnerable populations.
Creation of a Palliative Care Learning Health System Incubator
The goal of this project is to measurably improve the quality of life for people with serious illness by engaging in the rapid co-design and development of a dashboard and support network to coproduce better care experiences, higher health care value, and more knowledge on the science of palliative health care delivery.
Multi-Component Implementation of Shared Decision Making for Uterine Fibroids Across Socioeconomic Strata
The goal of this project is to implement Option Grids into clinical practice into electronic health records, patient portals, and telehealth systems at five settings – namely Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Mayo, Montefiore, and Washington University.
Multiple Sclerosis Continuous Quality Improvement (MS-CQI) Collaborative
The Multiple Sclerosis Continuous Quality Improvement (MS-CQI) Collaborative is the first national multi-center quality improvement research collaborative for multiple sclerosis (MS) in the United States. The goal of MSCQI is to use patient reported and clinical information from 4 participating MS centers to study and improve outcomes and experience of care for people with MS. MSCQI features an online platform which can be used by patients and clinicians to inform and coproduce care, population level feedback reporting to MS centers to inform improvement, and a step-wedge randomized research design to study the effect of QI interventions on outcomes over 3 years.
Measuring Coproduction Using coopeRATE: A Validation Study
The goal of this study is to establish new methods for measuring and improving collaborative goal setting between patients and their care providers in cystic fibrosis (CF) care.
Enabling Uptake of a Registry-Supported Care and Learning System in the U.S. & Ongoing Development of a National Program of Quality Improvement in CF Care
The goal of this project was to learn more about partnerships and opportunities to co-create care between individuals living with CF, their families, and their care teams. This project resulted in the co-design and pilot testing of a shared electronic environment that enabled symptom tracking, self-management, communication during and between visits, and informed decision-making to support co-creation of health and well-being.
