The project can be considered as part of a learning health system (LHS) approach in that it seeks to identify best practices in terms of the process for addressing these EHR issues. The LHS approach seeks to improve long term outcomes in health care by identifying optimal delivery processes and to do so in a systematic, rather than a haphazard way. (Friedman & Rigby, 2013).
