A new Sauder research centre is looking for the cure to health care inefficiencies. Harnessing mathematical models, they’re crunching data generated by hospitals, labs, research centres and more to give practitioners in the field a whole new way of looking at their operations – and the information they need to fix them.
The centre’s experts in Operations Research, Management Science and Analytics work closely with clinicians, managers and administrators to bring evidence-based solutions to the complex planning, operational and medical problems they face.
By bringing together graduate students, post-docs, visiting scholars and faculty working in this area, as well as health care practitioners, CORAH is a dynamic hub for collaboration, resources and ideas.
CORAH’s research benefits health care in a direct, tangible way, such as the chemotherapy appointment scheduling tool developed by Professor Martin Puterman.
Chemo SmartBook employs mathematical optimization techniques similar to those driving the complex schedules of airlines and manufacturing companies.
