How can healthcare become a Learning Health System (LHS), using technology that enables patients and professionals to continuously learn and develop the quality of care through coproduction in complex systems? Using the previous international research on LHSs as a starting point, Andreas focuses on the development and evaluation of LHS in a local context, the department of schizophrenia spectrum disorders at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden. The preliminary title of the dissertation is: “Towards a Learning Health System for severe mental illness”, examining LHSs from several different perspectives:

  • Studying the user perspective in cooperation with the Swedish Schizophrenia Association: "A Learning Health System for People with Severe Mental Illness: A Promise for Continuous Learning, Patient Coproduction and more Effective Care" (Submitted)
  • Development of a patient level data visualization to support person-centered care for schizophrenia - a plan to address complexity, in collaboration with University of Oxford: "How can complexity assessment inform the development and deployment of a digital dashboard for schizophrenia care? A case study of NASSS-CAT application"
  • A scoping- and hermeneutic review assessing LHS research and synthesizing results into a model (in progress)
  • Development and evaluation of LHS applications in services for people with psychotic illness and key stakeholder experiences (planning)

Andreas has a background as a psychologist in psychiatric care and as project manager for several projects enabling QI through data visualizations. The research is part of his work as a quality improvement officer in psychosis care.
