Workshop to address challenges in improving health care delivery

The Center for Integrated Healthcare Delivery Systems (CIHDS) will hold its fourth annual workshop on Thursday, April 5, at the Penn State Conference Center.

Members of academia and industry will converge to discuss improvements to health care delivery through the application of technology, engineering and systems principles. This year's workshop is designed to facilitate a discussion and prompt future work on both operational and research perspectives to improve the health care system with care coordination, empowering the individual patient, and using data to make decisions. The event will feature keynote speakers, research presentations, poster sessions and a networking reception.

Registration is $50 for professionals, $30 for Penn State faculty and staff and $10 for students. For more information or to register for the workshop, visit: www.healthcaredelivery.psu.edu/workshop/workshop2012.html.

CIHDS is a joint initiative of Penn State's colleges of medicine, engineering, information sciences and technology, and health and human development and the Office of the Vice President for Research. The center serves to capitalize on the existing strengths of Penn State and promote a holistic approach to understanding and solving problems of access and quality in healthcare.
