The science of health care delivery focuses on how patients actually receive care. From using engineering principles to determine the most efficient way to schedule patient appointments to research focusing on the most successful, cost-effective means for delivering treatment, this discipline's aim is to enhance the patient's experience with health care by improving quality, outcomes and cost.
Mayo Clinic’s Delivery Science Summit, September 16 - 18, 2015, hosted by the Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery, explores ways to enhance the patient experience, improve population health and manage the cost of care. Current research and concrete examples will be presented, providing tools for practice implementation, policy change and further research.
Presentations emerge from a variety of institutions and across many disciplines, including health economics, qualitative research, systems engineering, clinical statistics, implementation science, sociology and clinical informatics. Learn more and register today!
