describe an example of a hospital using healthcare systems engineering in patient safety.
Systems Engineering helps to design and manage complex systems. Healthcare providers such as hospitals use systems engineering approach to reduce harms and improve productivity. It also enhances patient experience, improvisations on bed management and enhancing transitions of patient care between different health care providers (ex- ambulatory services).
A classic example is John Hopkins hospital which uses data-enabled systems engineering approach to re-build an intelligent health system. This helps the hospital to enhance the value of healthcare. The transformed health data to information provides evidence for management and healthcare providers to take effective medical decisions, organizational strategies and policy making to ensure patient safety. In all of these activities, the core aim of the hospital is to ensure patient safety.
