INFORMS 2017 Healthcare Conference

INFORMS 2017 Healthcare Conference

Date : 26 - 28 Jul 2017
Location : Rotterdam, Netherlands
Category : Healthcare

Advances in medical sciences, technology, and society at large, have considerably improved life expectancy and health of populations across the globe in recent decades. These advancements have in turn brought about demands and aims which pose new challenges to societies. In high income countries, the affordability of health service systems is under pressure. At the same time, low and middle income countries seek to build up their health service systems with limited resources – sometimes hindered by humanitarian crises.

While there are differences between continents, countries, and even within countries, many of the present challenges result from global developments and are shared. There is much to be gained for the global population from sharing solutions and joining scientific forces to improve health services. In all the dynamics and complexity of the global developments, and the abundance of data available, operations researchers have a key role to play in these improvement efforts. A key role in finding affordable and sustainable solutions for the challenging problems faced by todays health service systems. Optimizing health service operations, and outcomes.

The goal of INFORMS Healthcare 2017 is to bring together academic researchers in “healthcare analytics” and industry stakeholders who are applying this research to share information and improve the delivery of effective healthcare. The health sector is catching up fast but still lags behind other industries such as airlines, hotel chains, and retail in the adoption of systematic and quantitative analysis used in decision support, and this conference will help to bridge the informational gap.

The conference aims to bring a cross-cultural view of healthcare systems worldwide and the research and applications designed to improve these systems in areas such as:
  • New methods associated with defining value in healthcare
  • Incorporation of O.R. and industrial engineering in healthcare delivery
  • Intersection of healthcare and public health to provide a more “population” perspective on value
  • Medical decision making
  • Computational optimization
  • Patient wait time guarantees
  • Effective use of electronic health records
  • Delivering healthcare in developing countries
Contributions in synergistic fields are also welcome: healthcare policy, clinical decision making, global health, therapy and treatment delivery, public health, and health informatics.
