The mission of the HEALTH-Engine Lab is to develop innovative engineering solutions to healthcare challenges through the following objectives:
- Research: To advance methodologies and techniques in the areas of deterministic and stochastic modeling, data-driven optimization, machine learning, and simulation in the application of health policy, health information technology, healthcare delivery, healthcare operations, disease diagnostics, and medical treatment planning.
- Education: To prepare the future industrial engineering workforce for contemporary and prospective challenges in healthcare by mentoring, training, hosting, and supporting graduate and undergraduate students on healthcare systems engineering projects.
- Societal Impact: To design high-quality, effective, affordable, lean, and translational engineering solutions that improve patient-centered care throughout the healthcare system.
- Collaborations: To build a consortium of interdisciplinary, convergent research projects and partnerships by fostering collaborations with medicine, public health, engineering, information technology, and industry.
