Re-Engineering the Hospital: Taking a Systems Approach

Meeting Room 8
Breakout Sessions

Moderator: Dennis Weaver, M.D., Chief Medical Officer and Executive Vice President, Advisory Board

It’s been a decade since the Institute of Medicine and the National Academy of Engineering noted that, in order to improve patient safety and quality of care, systems engineering principles that govern in other arenas from aviation to auto manufacturing to nuclear aircraft carriers would need to be applied in healthcare. But the challenges are great – notably the lack of interoperability of technologies, a payment model that rewards based on volume rather than efficiency and outcomes, and the complexity of care – and progress has been limited. We’ll hear from a few pioneers about the obstacles they faced and lessons learned.
