AHRQ Health Care Innovations Exchange: August 25 Web Event


The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) invites you to
join the Health Care Innovations Exchange for a Web event titled

Using Learning Communities to Support Innovation Adoption: Lessons from the AHRQ Health Care Innovations Exchange

When: Thursday, August 25, 2016, 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. EDT
This Web event is designed to share results and lessons from the Innovations Exchange’s Learning Communities initiative (  
From 2014-2016, the Innovations Exchange sponsored three Learning Communities (LCs) to support innovation adoption in the following high-priority areas:
  1. Advancing the Practice of Patient- and Family-Centered Care in Hospitals (Florida);
  2. Reducing Non-Urgent Emergency Services (Detroit); and
  3. Promoting Medication Therapy Management for At-Risk Populations (Houston).
The event will present an overview of the activities and results of the three LCs; provide insights about factors that influenced innovation adoption and implementation; and share lessons learned in using LCs as a method to implement innovations to improve quality. A leader, or “champion,” from each LC will present highlights about the learning community experience.
This Web event is sponsored by the AHRQ Health Care Innovations Exchange, and is presented in collaboration with AcademyHealth.
