Grant funds effort to improve patient OR to ICU transitions


The U.S. Department of Defense recently awarded Industrial and Systems Engineering Associate Professor Doug Wiegmann and colleagues from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center an additional $1.2 million to complete the second phase of their project to design the operating room of the future. This new phase will explore ways to improve patients’ transition from the operating room to the postoperative intensive care unit.
