Mark Van Oyen, professor in U-M’s Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering (IOE), has been elected 2019 Vice President and 2020 President of the INFORMS Health Applications Society (HAS).
HAS plays a unique and critical role by developing powerful design and analysis methods of operations research, industrial and operations engineering, and management science to improve healthcare in areas such as care delivery, decision making, and process improvement.
“It is an exciting time to help lead HAS and nurture its depth and diversity, which extends to theory and applications for healthcare delivery/operations, medical decision making, and disease treatment,” said Van Oyen. “We will be working with relevant journals to improve peer reviewing and publication processes. Machine learning and big data solutions are emerging areas that I am eager to help our society navigate.”
