About this book

In this volume, scientists and practitioners write about new methods and technologies for improving the operation of health care organizations.  Statistical analyses play an important role in these methods with the implications of simulation and modeling applied to the future of health care.  Papers are based on work presented at the Second International Conference on Health Care Systems Engineering (HCSE2015) in Lyon, France.  The conference was a rare opportunity for scientists and practitioners to share work directly with each other.  Each resulting paper received a double blind review.  Paper topics include: hospital drug logistics, emergency care, simulation in patient care, and models for home care services. 

About the authors

Andrea Matta is Distinguished Professor at the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management, School of Mechanical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). He graduated in Industrial Engineering at Politecnico di Milano where he developed his teaching and research activities as temporary Researcher from 1997 to 2001, Assistant Professor from 2001 to 2010, and Associate Professor from 2010 to current date. His research area includes analysis, design, and management of production and healthcare systems. He currently teaches Stochastic Models and System Modeling & Simulation at SJTU. He has published more than 100 papers, which have appeared on international journals and conference proceedings.

Evren Sahin is Full University Professor of Operations Management at CentraleSupélec, France. She received her PhD in Supply Chain Management in 2004. She is Director of the Faurecia Chair on Manufacturing and Logistics where she develops research in plant logistics optimization, cross-docking, and inventory management. She also works on healthcare management, with a particular focus on home care, emergency services design, and hospital flow management. She has more than thirty papers in international journals.
Jingshan Li received his BS from the Department of Automation, Tsinghua University, his MS from the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and his PhD in Electrical Engineering–Systems, at the University of Michigan in 1989, 1992 and 2000, respectively. He has worked in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Kentucky and in the Manufacturing Systems Research Lab at General Motors Research & Development Center. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Li is the co-author of the textbook Production Systems Engineering and co-editor of multiple book volumes on system science, sustainable production, battery manufacturing and management, and healthcare systems. In addition, he has published more than 70 refereed journal articles, 10 book chapters and 100 peer reviewed conference proceedings. He also has served as editor for multiple journals and has received such awards as the 2006 IEEE Early Industry/Government Career Award in Robotics and Automation. His primary research interests are in design, analysis, and improvement and control of production and healthcare delivery systems. His research has been supported by NSF, DOE, NIST, PCORI, industry and healthcare organizations.
Alain Guinet is a full University Professor in the Industrial Engineering Department of INSA (Institut National des Sciences Appliquées) de Lyon in France. He received a PhD in 1983 and an Accreditation to Supervise Research (Habilitation à Diriger les Recherches) in 1992. He currently teaches Operation Research, Staffing and Scheduling, and Business Process Reengineering. His research activity is based on hospital management problems such as operating theatre control, hospital regrouping management, emergency network reengineering, home care resource coordination, hospital supply chain, and logistics for disaster management. His scientific investigations include human and material resources dimensioning, planning and scheduling, production network reengineering, defense, and logistics.

Nico Vandaele holds a degree Commercial Engineering (1990) and obtained a PhD in Applied Economics, Operations Research and Operations Management from KULeuven in 1996. He has served as executive director of the Innovation and Incubation Center at Kortrijk, Nyo Alatus and Xathlon, and has served as consultant/advisor for many major global companies. He is currently Full Professor Operations Management at the KULeuven, Faculty of Business and Economics. He is holder of the GSK Research Chair on Operations Management. He is a research member of the Research Center of Operations Management. He is also a visiting researcher at CORE and IAG (Université Catholique de Louvain). Dr. Vandaele teaches courses in operations research, operations management and supply chain management, and he has published in multiple leading journals. His research interests are situated in modeling of manufacturing and service systems, performance measurement, the design of planning systems, sales and operations management, factory physics, healthcare management, and traffic modeling. Other research deals with decision support systems for product design and development and portfolio management. He is active in several executive training programs, both national and international.
