Over the past half-century, the development of simulation and systems engineering has driven a revolution in safety and performance in the aerospace industry. In this university podcast, John Evans, a VP with Lockheed Martin, discusses how the health care industry has the opportunity to leverage these tools to improve outcomes and address the ballooning cost of healthcare. He provides examples of how these approaches can be used to drive efficiency and outcomes in intensive care, in particular. Evans presented as part of a panel called “Using technology to redesign the delivery of health care”, held at the 2011 GSB Healthcare Summit, sponsored by the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Efforts to bring promising health care interventions to resource-constrained regions of the world often falter because entrepreneurs underestimate the array of obstacles that loom in their path.
By predicting vulnerability, biological science can help families, communities, clinicians, and policymakers develop more effective responses to a troubling health challenge.
