ABOUT THE LAB
The Health Care Lab pools interdisciplinary competencies of researchers at KSRI and provides sound decision support to solve health care planning problems. We generally work with quantitative methods from operations research, such as process optimization, simulation, and machine learning. In doing so, we are in close contact with partners from the health care sector, especially hospitals, medical practices, and those responsible for emergency service planning. Further partners are the FZI and the IOR, in particular the research group Discrete Optimization and Logistics.
Research at the Health Care Lab deals with various topics related to the analysis and optimization of processes in the health care sector. Attention is also paid to the consideration of increasing digitalization. The most important topics include process optimization in the emergency services, for general practitioners and in hospitals.
