Healthcare Systems: Clinical Decision Making, Operational Management, and Public Policy

Healthcare Systems

The healthcare sector forms a large segment of the United States (and world) economy, and a fair, efficient, safe, and effective use of healthcare resources is of the utmost importance. Healthcare is a complex system, and the research performed in ISE works towards improving healthcare through better decisions, from those made at the policy and strategic levels, down to day-to-day clinical and operational decisions.  Besides decisions, ISE also works to develop novel therapies, improve current ones, and improve the safety of healthcare delivery.  Our strengths cut across methodological boundaries and include operations research and data analytics, ergonomics and human factors, and bio-manufacturing.  These methodological strengths are integrated with extensive healthcare knowledge and strong partnerships with the medical and health sciences community to transform health systems.
