The Healthcare Engineering Research Group is focused on development and application of advanced analytical tools for improving the efficiency and efficacy of healthcare systems. Healthcare is a complex interaction of several stakeholders and components, including patients, physicians, nurses, healthcare facilities, government policies and insurance providers. Analytical techniques, along with systems thinking, provide unique opportunities for analyzing and exploiting these interactions to bring high-impact, reliable improvements.
The team is composed faculty members with expertise in statistical modeling, data mining, optimization and systems engineering. Researchers and practitioners with complementary interests may contact Dr. Abhishek K. Shrivastava or individual team members.
