    When a disaster strikes, it rarely impacts just one jurisdiction. It is important for jurisdictions to consider how they will respond to a scenario in which the entire region is impacted. To explore these considerations, the Institute of Medicine's Forum on Medical and Public Health Preparedness for Catastrophic Events organized a workshop in 2014 to examine how information and incident management can augment response efforts in a complex, regional emergency. This brief summary highlights the presentation and discussion of the workshop.

    In April and June 2014 the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) Roundtable on Value & Science-Driven Health Care convened two workshops aimed at accelerating progress toward real-time knowledge generation through the seamless integration of clinical practice and research, one of the fundamental concepts of a continuously learning health system. These meetings were sponsored by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, and prompted by the development of the PCORnet and similar efforts to accelerate real-time learning. A major premise that served as the foundation for the two workshops is that the continuous and seamless assessment of the effectiveness and efficiency of care is basic to a continuously learning and constantly improving health care system. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions that occurred during the two workshops, highlighting the key lessons presented, practical strategies, and the needs and opportunities for future leadership.
