ISyE healthcare conference a success

The first meeting of the National Collaborative for Improving Primary Care Through Industrial and Systems Engineering (I-PrACTISE), also known as the Karsh Initiative, was held in Madison on April 28-30 to discuss applying industrial engineering to improve patient experiences in primary care. 

It was highly successful, with 150 attending a celebration of the life and work of the late Ben-Tzion Karsh on Sunday evening, and 74 invited engineers and primary care physicians attending the main conference. Another conference is being planned for 2014.
