MHPW 2010: Making Healthcare Processes Work
Information Systems meet Scheduling Theory
Auditorium, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands
Workshop: February 15-16, 2010;
: February 1, 2010
Call for Participation in PDF format
The healthcare sector is one of the most important economic sectors of industrialized countries. Healthcare
currently consumes 15% of the U.S. Gross Domestic Product and it is expected to reach 19% within the
This workshop aims to bring together practitioners and research experts from varying fields (information
systems, computer scientists, probabilists, healthcare administrators and medical doctors) in order to
develop a new integrated methodology in the approach of frontier problems in healthcare. It provides the
right forum for the presentation and discussion of both recent developments in research and the new
challenges faced by healthcare organisations, as well as the cooperation of a diverse body of experts. The
workshop brings together researchers from Europe, North America, Canada and Israel. It aims to integrate the
research on healthcare problems within Europe.
The theme of the workshop focuses on the modelling of processes connected to the healthcare industry; the
underlying goal is to improve the performance of these processes via the analysis of the stochastic nature of
the procedures followed and the optimised usage of information systems.
It is our goal to treat core questions in the field both from an operational point of view (performance) and
from an organisational point of view (dissemination of information). The novelty of our approach is that we
wish to approach problems through an integrated approach, looking at all contributing procedures, rather
than focus on specific research areas. For this reason, we have gathered a wide panel of experts.
