The Wisconsin Institute for Healthcare Systems Engineering (WIHSE) is a research initiative in the College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin – Madison which will act as a hub to bring together practitioners and researchers in health care and engineering to conduct research, create new knowledge, and design better systems in health care.
The vision of WIHSE is “to be the premier research institute that transforms health care through engineering, positioning us to achieve the Quadruple Aim of revolutionizing the patient experience, improving population health, controlling healthcare costs, and enhancing clinician satisfaction.” Download a printable WIHSE brochure.
ROUND TABLE #1 FOR NSF ENGINEERING RESEARCH CENTER ON HEALTHY AND SAFE AGING
WIHSE ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR JINGSHAN LI STARTS PROJECT FUNDED BY BAXTER
Professor Jingshan Li was recently awarded funding from Baxter for a project that aims to develop data analytic methods to provide risk prediction and patient-centered intervention strategies for acute kidney injury (AKI) and congestive heart failure (CHF) patients. Congratulations Jingshan!
This AHRQ grant, “Engineering Safe Care Journeys for Vulnerable Populations”, is a four-year grant that will create a patient safety passport to support the journey of care for older adults diagnosed with a fall or UTI in the ED.
