“At the heart of the LHS vision is a fundamental question: How do we catalyze, sustain and continually advance a massive socio-technical transformation of a system touching everyone’s life and health, and encompassing over one-sixth of a nation’s economy when such a transformation will take years or decades, likely requires the participation – or at least affects – stakeholders inside and outside of healthcare and is urgently needed?
Addressing this challenge requires stakeholders with seemingly divergent interests to work together. It involves knowledge and skills from many disciplines to come together and be able to effectively and efficiently communicate and collaborate with one another. It requires technology and people, and it affects physical systems, information systems and social systems."

Vlasic & Roth dedicates a portion of its revenue to funding innovative research towards achieving the vision of the Learning Health System. The Learning Health System (LHS) vision describes a new infrastructure for an integrated health system designed for the rapid transformation of aggregate data into knowledge to inform clinical practice and improve health. Learning will occur at all levels of scale including individuals, organizations, states, regions, and nations. The ability of healthcare organizations to learn is a key determinant of their performance and the quality of care delivered.
