INFORMS HEALTHCARE 2019: Transforming Health with Data, Mind, and HandJoin us this summer in Cambridge, Massachusetts for this year's INFORMS Healthcare conference, co-hosted by the MIT Sloan School of Management and Massachusetts General Hospital!
The theme of the conference, "Transforming Health with Data, Mind, and Hand," highlights the potential joint impact of analytics, academia, and practice, as exemplified by the long history of successful collaboration between both institutions. Inspired by MIT's motto, "Mens et Manus"- "mind and hand"- this collaborative effort reflects our joint vision of using data analytics and research to impact medicine, healthcare policy, and delivery.
In addition to hosting regular sessions on the well-known tracks of Personalized Medicine, Healthcare Delivery, Public Health, Information Technology, Supply Chains and Economics, the conference will feature "practice-oriented" sessions. In an effort to bring together the academic community and practitioners, one or more of these sessions' participants will be experts from the industry on a particular topic; other speakers will be academics who work in the same domain.
The conference venue, MIT Sloan, is at the heart of Kendall Square, in Cambridge, MA, home to multiple leading organizations in healthcare technology, medicine, pharmaceuticals, public health, and biotechnology. Similarly, Boston is home to several of the best Academic Medical Centers of the United States. There will be two field trips showcasing the spectrum of work being conducted at the MIT Broad Institute and the Massachusetts General Hospital.
Deadline for submitting abstracts is this week, March 29, 2019 11:59PM EST
