The HealthCareLab pools interdisciplinary competencies of researchers at KSRI and provides sound decision support to solve health care planning problems. We generally work with quantitative methods from operations research, such as process optimization, simulation, and machine learning. In doing so, we are in close contact with partners from the health care sector, especially hospitals, medical practices, and those responsible for emergency service planning.
We organize events like workshops or conferences to strengthen cooperation with other researchers. For example, we hosted the ORAHS conference 2019 in Karlsruhe.
In addition to research, we offer several Operations Research courses in health care, especially for our Master's students. Among other things, students can already try their hand at solving problems from practice in the practical seminar "OR in Health Care Management." You can find more information about our courses here.
