Forecasting and Stochastic Programming Models to Address Uncertainty in the Trauma System Configuration Problem

December 3, 2020

RSVP to join us. Trauma care services are a vital part of all healthcare-based network as timely accessibility is important for citizens. Trauma care access is even more relevant when unexpected events such as the COVID-19 pandemic overload the capacity of the hospitals. Research literature has highlighted that access to trauma care is not even for all populations, especially when comparing rural and urban groups. Historically, the configuration of a trauma system was often not considered as a whole but instead hinged on the designation and verification of individual hospitals as trauma care centers. Recognition of the benefits of an…

An Industrial Engineering-Based Approach to Designing & Evaluating Healthcare Systems to Improve Veteran Access to Care

November 20, 2020

RSVP to Join Us. Access to healthcare is a critical public health issue in the United States, especially for veterans. Veterans are older on average than the general U.S. population and are thus at higher risk for chronic disease. Further, veterans report more delays when seeking healthcare. The Veterans Affairs (VA) Healthcare System continuously works to develop policies and technologies that aim to improve veteran access to care. Industrial engineering methods can be effective in analyzing the impact of such policies, as well as designing or modifying systems to better align veteran patients’ needs with providers and resources. In the…
