Abstract: MCBK has become an important aspect of establishing Learning Health Systems (LHSs) in the US. The vision of LHS grew out of the imperative to improve healthcare in the US and internationally where system-level challenges include the underutilization of appropriate care and the overutilization of inappropriate caredespite rising costs, patient safety issues and evidence of health disparities (Friedman,et al., 2017). With training in MCBK collections and technology, LIS professionals can becontributors to LHSs and help design more effective data archives and repositories toimprove information accessibility for healthcare professionals, patients, and researchers. From a pilot class to a sustainable open educational resource (OER) with a community of practice (CoP) that can use online materials, this proposal will improv delivery of computable applications to LIS professionals and healthcare providers.
