The University of Texas (UT) has six health institutions (including MD Anderson Cancer Center) and Industrial and Systems Engineering faculty throughout university locations such as Engineering and Business schools at UT-Austin, UT-Dallas, UT-San Antonio, and UT-Arlington. These health institutions and academic institutions (along with the UT Medical School) are partnering to implement Systems Engineering in healthcare throughout the UT System. The "systems approach to implementing Systems Engineering" is an opportunity to serve as a world-class model for collaboration across academic and healthcare institutions to implement Systems Engineering and systems thinking in healthcare. By synthesizing the efforts of the UT components, this initiative results in reduced costs, reduced wait times, safer processes, and more efficient and effective care. Systems Engineering includes front-line tools such as Lean, Six Sigma, PDSA as well as more traditional Industrial Engineering disciplines such as Operations Research including scheduling, simulation, and heuristics; Human Factors; Applied Statistics; and Facility Design Layout.
