High-Reliability Organizations in Healthcare

Presenter(s): Dr. David Claudio and Dr. Jon Boyer

Is it a repackaging of conventional ISE tools and methods, or is there something more? In 2017, Frankel et al.1 published a white paper on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) website, discussing a holistic framework for healthcare organizations to improve patient safety continuously and reliably. The scheme, which was based on findings by the Michigan Health and Hospital Association2, centers around patient and family engagement and considers the organization’s leadership, culture, and continuous learning and improvement. This framework is the foundation for High-Reliability Organizations (HROs) in healthcare systems. This Webinar will discuss the concept of HROs and their framework to assess and improve human-level deficiencies to prevent errors in healthcare systems.

IISE Body of Knowledge Applications in Economic Analysis, System Design and Information Engineering

Presenter(s):Dr. Mayra Méndez and Dr. Ben Amaba

During this webinar the speakers will share with the audience application of the IISE BoK in the areas of Economic Analysis, System Design and Information Engineering.

Dr. Méndez-Piñero presents an evaluation of different projects within the public sector in Puerto Rico using applications of engineering economic analysis to understand the decisions made to support project implementation is presented

Dr. Amaba demonstrates how ISE is the profession of the future in our role orchestrating the physical, mathematical and social sciences for the digital future. Considering that information to knowledge drives economic development, data-driven industrial and systems engineers can solve major challenges software factories, data warehouses and agile flow, among others.
