The University of Texas Systems Engineering in Healthcare Conference

Welcome to Houston and our second University of Texas Conference on Systems Engineering in Healthcare. Our theme is “Transformational Change” and over the course of the two days, you will hear how our colleagues across the UT System and nation are identifying opportunities to meet and address the current challenges in healthcare in innovative ways. Our conference features three tracks: Systems Engineering tools, Systems Engineering applications from across the UT System and nationwide, and overviews of strategic planning to achieve transformational change in healthcare. There will also be reports from the ten grants funded by the Board of Regents for applying Systems Engineering and the Science of Quality Improvement to healthcare.

Nationally recognized keynote speakers and experts will share innovative approaches to improving and optimizing the delivery and value of care. We expect that their presentations will spark discussion with new ideas. Tools and applications of the Science of Quality Improvement will be presented that will help us deliver care that is safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable and patient-centered. In addition to these stimulating presentations, posters showing applications of Systems Engineering tools will be on display in the meeting areas.
This conference is an opportunity for us to add a deeper understanding of the tools and techniques available to healthcare for continuous improvement. We appreciate your participation and hope you enjoy the conference!

The UT Systems Enigneering in Healthcare Conference is made possible by support of The University of Texas Board of Regents, Raymond S. Greenber, MD; Executive Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs and Victoria Jordan, PhD; UT Chancellor's Health Fellow for Systems Engineering.
