This Learning Community is part of the ACTS COVID-19 Guidance to Action Collaborative. The home page for the Collaborative is here (though this and Learning Community page and related page are currently the main focus of Collaborative activity).

Learning Community Goals:

  1. Cross-fertilize and accelerate current efforts to develop and deliver to care teams the latest COVID-19 evidence-based guidance - and tools to apply it;

  2. Measurably improve care and outcomes for COVID-19 patients and care teams in limited settings for selected targets being addressed by Learning Community participants in ways that can be scaled to many other targets and settings;
  3. Advance tools, standards, and collaborations that seed the digital knowledge platforms (from AHRQ/others), knowledge ecosystem, reference architecture, and public private partnerships called for in the ACTS Roadmap.

Scaling the Collaborative


Members of the AHRQ evidence-based Care Transformation Support (ACTS) initiative Stakeholder Community have been working together under the ACTS COVID-19 Guidance to Action Collaborative to improve the development, dissemination and use of “living” COVID-19 guidance. This presentation from 7/1/20 provides an overview of the ACTS initiative and its Roadmap for producing a healthcare knowledge ecosystem that fosters learning health systems and realization of the quadruple aim.

This part of the ACTS COVID-19 Guidance to Action Collaborative website is a Learning Community for Collaborative participants who are developing, implementing, and evaluating living CDS interventions focused on specific COVID-19 patient management issues. The Collaborative goal is to continually enhance patient care related to the pandemic as the evidence base evolves, and to support those working along the COVID-19 'knowledge supply chain' (data-to evidence-to knowledge-to guidance-to action) to improve clinical guidance development and workflow integration for COVID-19 (and beyond) to make the knowledge supply chain more efficient and effective as outlined in the ACTS Roadmap.

Of particular interest as a Learning Community result is insights (and ideally tools and collaborations) that could seed an AHRQ Digital Knowledge Platform and related components of the Knowledge Ecosystem called for in the ACTS Roadmap (see diagrams below). Technical components, for example, could include include integration engines, an advanced search engine, UI / Dashboard display visualization software, API software, etc. to enable users (e.g. developers and consumers of resources such as systematic reviews, clinical recommendations/guidance/guidelines, CDS interventions (including L4 localizations, etc.) to produce, access and maintain key resources from AHRQ and others better than is currently the case.
