The Center for Operations Research in Medicine and HealthCare, founded in 1998 through sponsorships from the National Science Foundation and the Whitaker Foundation, is a collaborative education and research center established between the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology and medical and healthcare researchers in different disciplines. Our mission is to foster interdisciplinary education and research efforts involving the advancement and application of sophisticated mathematical and computational techniques to problems in medicine and healthcare. Utilizing the wealth of methodologies and theories in operations research, systems modeling, algorithms and software design, and decision theory analysis, our researchers tackle problems in biomedical informatics; predictive health; disease modeling, early diagnosis and prediction; optimal treatment design and drug delivery; target intervention and treatment outcome prediction; public health and medical preparedness; medical decision analysis; quality improvement, efficient operations, and logistics associated with healthcare delivery systems.
