Join us in Chicago for the second INFORMS conference on healthcare operations research, systems engineering and analytics.
The Institute of Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS) is pleased to announce the second conference on healthcare, INFORMS Healthcare 2013 in Chicago. The conference aims to bring a diverse group of researchers and stakeholders together to share information and insights that can improve the long-term efficiency, effectiveness and quality of healthcare delivery.
Presentations at INFORMS Healthcare 2013 will span a wide range of problems in the healthcare continuum that are amenable to data driven approaches. We also welcome contributions from synergistic fields including healthcare policy, clinical decision making, global health, therapy and treatment delivery, public health, and health informatics.
We are pleased that a number of INFORMS subdivisions, as well as key societies and organizations outside INFORMS, are technical co-sponsors. With support from these organizations, the conference is expected to draw researchers, practitioners, and clinicians from the U.S., Canada, Europe and around the world, offering a cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary view of healthcare systems.
Sanjay Mehrotra, General Chair
