"We live in a network world in which we can gain information in a much more rapid fashion, and we can vet that information in a much more rapid fashion too.

... Creating natural feedback loops so the results captured are evalu ated and fed back into the system for learning and improvement purposes Because the modern network approach to learning is nonlinear, as opposed to the more traditional linear approach, "one of our biggest challenges is to force ourselves to look specifically at those intersecting dynamics, at each of those points in the feedback process and ensure that the elements necessary for the success of the activities at each of those points are given consideration," Dr. McGinnis said.

"You have in the cancer community the patients, the providers, and the motivations to serve as the leading edge of progress and to engage decision makers in an explicit exploration of the issues, opportunities, and responsibilities when it comes to improving access to data, which is a fundamental issue for a learning healthcare system.
