To facilitate the delivery of world class advances in medical care through world class advances in hospital operations.
Improving the quality of patient care. Educating students, doctors, nurses, and hospital leaders. Sharing knowledge with the medical and academic communities.
We use machine learning, mathematical optimization, simulation, and a variety of statistical, probabilistic, and computational tools.
Doctors, Nurses, Interpreters, and Hospital Executives Present Project Ideas
Each year stakeholders from all over LPCH and SHC generate ideas to use engineering methodology to improve the quality and reduce the cost of patient care. After careful evaluation by hospital leadership and coordination across the institutions, the most promising projects are selected. The sponsors of the selected projects present their idea to a class of the engineers, doctors, business students, and others who will go on to work with SURF in the Spring Quarter.
