The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, located in Houston in the Texas Medical Center, is one of the world’s most respected centers dedicated exclusively to cancer care, research, education, and prevention. MD Anderson aims to provide safe, timely, effective, equitable, efficient, and patient centered care as part of its mission to eliminate cancer. The Healthcare Systems Engineering team at MD Anderson supports this goal by facilitating the design, implementation, and improvement of health care systems using proven systems engineering methods and principles. Jeremy Meade and David Bivins will provide an overview of their role, organization structure, training programs, and examples of projects using systems engineering tools such as lean, six sigma, simulation, and optimization.
