2019 TutORial: Health System Innovation

Given by Retsef Levi at the 2019 INFORMS Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA

This tutorial focuses on the implementation of data- and analytics-driven innovation in health systems. In particular, we focus on innovation around operations, system design, and optimization of large delivery systems.

Additionally, the tutorial discusses a formal project management framework, general principles, and key success drivers that enable field implementations of high impact, analytics-driven projects. These discussions are specifically centered around facilitating collaboration between academics with analytics expertise, clinicians and administrative leaders in healthcare systems, as well as policy makers.

To illustrate the usage of these ideas in practice, we describe three projects done in collaboration between Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan School of Management.
