Abstract: A learning Healthcare System continues to be an ambitious pursuit of medicine.  Informatics-based approaches can allow the transformation of routine clinical health data into usable information and subsequent actionable clniical knowledge.  Despite the great potential of advanced computational techniques, barriers to adoption continue to exist in the clinic due to a need for high level clinical evidence and streamlined implementation solutions.  We discuss our experience in exploring electronic health (EHR) data and developing, validating and implementing a clinical tool to predict acute encounters during cancer therapy.
