Transforming Health with Data, Mind and Hand

July 27-29, 2019

MIT Sloan School of Management

Massachusetts General Hospital

Much like Jaume Plensa’s Alchemist, commissioned in honor of MIT’s 150th anniversary, marries numeric symbols with human effort as an homage to researchers and scientists, the INFORMS 2019 Healthcare Conference recognizes the many contributions of operations research and analytics professionals to the advancement of healthcare.

The 2019 conference, “Transforming Health with Data, Mind and Hand,” will explore how analytics, operations research and management science can transform medicine, healthcare policy and delivery, with particular emphasis placed on connecting the INFORMS community and healthcare professionals to impact practice.

Inspired by MIT’s motto, “Mens et Manus”—”mind and hand”— this collaborative effort proposed by MIT Sloan and Massachusetts General Hospital reflects our joint vision of using data analytics and research to impact medicine, healthcare policy, and delivery.

The goal of INFORMS Healthcare 2019 is to bring together academic researchers in “healthcare analytics” and industry stakeholders who are applying this research to share information and improve the delivery of effective healthcare. The health sector is catching up fast but still lags behind other industries such as airlines, hotel chains, and retail in the adoption of systematic and quantitative analysis used in decision support, and this conference will help to bridge the informational gap. The conference aims to bring a cross-cultural view of healthcare systems worldwide and the research and applications designed to improve these systems in areas such as:
  • Medical decision making
  • Computational optimization
  • Patient wait time guarantees
  • Effective use of electronic health records
  • Delivering healthcare in developing countries
  • New methods associated with defining value in healthcare
  • Incorporation of O.R. and industrial engineering in healthcare delivery
  • Intersection of healthcare and public health to provide a more “population” perspective on value

Contributions in synergistic fields are also welcome: healthcare policy, clinical decision making, global health, therapy and treatment delivery, public health, and health informatics.
