Creating Impact with Operations Research in Health

OR-based analyses have the potential to improve decision making for many important problems in healthcare. However, scholars – particularly junior scholars – often avoid working on practical applications in health because promotion and tenure processes tend to value theoretical studies more highly than applied studies. This talk discusses the speaker’s experiences in using OR to inform and influence decisions in health and provides a blueprint for researchers who wish to find success by taking a similar path. We also suggest how journals, funding agencies, and senior academics can encourage such work by taking a broader and more informed view of the potential role and contributions of OR to solving health care problems.
