Healthcare Systems Engineering: Tools to Untangle Complexity and Mitigate Risks
Wednesday, March 15, 2012

Past attempts to improve the delivery of healthcare and mitigate the risks associated with the use of medications have been thwarted by the sheer complexity of the healthcare system. Ad hoc planning and intuitive approaches to risk assessment cannot produce programs that effectively manage safe use of medications. Systems engineering is the proven discipline of measuring, modeling, and managing process improvements in large complex systems. Lehigh University is pioneering the application of systems engineering to the challenging needs of healthcare. Healthcare Systems Engineering provides pharmaceutical industry professionals standardized tools and methods to develop and evaluate programs that improve safe use of medications.

INTEGRATED HEALTHCARE DELIVERY SYMPOSIUM
Thursday, May 10, 2012

The delivery of affordable, effective healthcare is as prominent as it has ever been on the national stage. Beyond the politics, however, lies a simple truth: solutions for this complex challenge require an integrated approach that draws from the medical and provider community and associated insurance and regulatory organizations, as well as experts from the realms of business and economics, information technology, and systems engineering. This workshop explored the state of the art in this field, future research directions and challenges, and mechanisms for interdisciplinary cooperation.
