Complex Systems Science Applied to Health Care

February 2, 2017 - 5:30pm

Dr. Ramshaw will discuss how complex systems science — a platform first discovered more than 100 years ago by physicists and which ultimately led to quantum mechanics — relates to the discipline of health care. Dr. Ramshaw and his multidisciplinary team have been working to implement value-based clinical quality improvement (CQI) and non-linear analytics by focusing on hernia disease in order to ultimately decrease patient costs and improve the quality and experience of patient care. Because of his team's success, the University of Tennessee has modified its academic platform to apply these principles across its entire Medical Center. This talk will describe these principles and tools of complex systems science and illustrate examples of the benefits to our health care system when these tools are applied to real-world patient care.
