Operations Research in Health Care

Operations Research in Health Care

Our primary research interests are broadly in operations research applied to healthcare delivery. Some examples: I've worked on planning and scheduling of surgical suites; designing primary care physician panels to maximize timeliness and patient-physician continuity; and optimization of prostate cancer screening decisions. We have also recently begun looking at improving emergency room operations. In addressing these problems, we collaborate with a diverse set of...Read More
