# SPECIAL FOCUS: A New Model for Discovery: Open Science from Research to Care, and Back
As our appreciation for the complexity of people and systems increases, and as new data streams and opportunities for discovery abound, a critical transformation is taking root. Both producers and end users of research are realizing that they will get further, faster by working together, by involving non-traditional partners in the process, and by making their work (and data!) more transparent and accessible. Join this exciting panel as discussants involved in this new era of open science share their insights and experiences across the full spectrum, and challenge us all to do more.

A New Model for Discovery – Jerry Sheehan
OSTP Public Access memo – 22 Feb 2013.
Any agency spending >$100M had to make research data more accessible.
– Maximize free access
– Data Management Plans
– Inclusion of costs in funding applications
16 Federal agencies have complete public access plans.
PubMed Central is the repository for NIH, HHS and VA, CDC.
88% of datasets are not in publicly accessible repositories. This is not 88% of data. There has been a focus on high value datasets.
Quality Improvement v Research
Quality improvement is to create improvements within an institution.
Research is generating Generalizable knowledge
Bray Patrick Lake
Bray has a useless but complete Longitudinal health record: Two large binders and a couple of disks. Impossible to use.
John Wilbanks: Scholarly articles are still like Yahoo! 1996. Only 20 years behind the Internet world.
A new deal in Science: More capacity available to the individual. We need a framework to reset the culture.Federal Funding can drive the change.
Should we be connecting the threads:
- Researchers reluctant to use Patient Generated Data
- Clinical/Admin EMR data is used as source for research
- Patients when they get their records find many errors, sometimes repeated for years.
Why isn’t the Patient fully engaged in Research to help validate the underlying data.
