IME-656 Engineering for Healthcare Systems 4 Credits
This course examines the technical structure of the healthcare delivery system and the role that industrial and systems engineering (ISE) plays in its design and improvement. Included will be how healthcare systems work in hospitals, medical offices, clinics and other healthcare organizations. Traditional ISE methods for improving quality, patient safety, and employee productivity and satisfaction will be presented within a systematic application of value chain engineering designed to produce lean processes.
