Management Engineering for Effective Healthcare Delivery: Principles and Applications

Modeling and Simulation is one of  key systems engineering tools could transform the healthcare delivery. Several of my colleagues and I have contributed to the book with sample of how to use computer simulation to improve care process and workflow redesign.   See links.

#WHO Report on the Burden of HAI and its impact on patient safety #yam #ptsafety

WHO published Report the Burden of Endemic Health Care-Associated Infection Worldwide. 


From the report: 

” • The estimated HAI incidence rate in theUnited Stateswas 4.5% in 2002, affecting 1.7 million patients and corresponding to 9.3 infections per 1,000 patient days.

• In the United States approximately 99,000 deaths are attributed to HAIs each year, and the annual economic impact was estimated at approximately $6.5 billion. ”
