I-PrACTISE EAST 2019 Pre-conference Workshop

Introduction to Healthcare Systems Engineering

Date: Sunday June 2, 1-4:30 pm


Many healthcare organizations are using systems engineering and human factors (SE/HF) methods to improve process performance, reduce errors, improve outcomes, and reduce work burden. This interactive workshop provides a general introduction to the field of systems engineering and its application to healthcare. Topics to be covered include a broad overview of systems engineering and human factors methods, typical applications in health care, and their various uses for understanding, designing, modeling, and optimizing processes and problems of interest. Hands-on group exercises will provide participants an opportunity to apply key learnings and methods, including human factors, engineering design, and model-based analysis.

Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe common types of systems engineering methods and how they can be applied to important healthcare problems

  • Identify useful opportunities to apply systems engineering, human factors, and design methods in their healthcare organizations

  • Conduct a systems engineering or human factors analysis to improve the design, performance, and efficiency of some problem of interest.


CEU credits are being explored and information will be posted here shortly.
