Malden received help from the Health­care Sys­tems Engi­neering Exten­sion Center, led by James Ben­neyan, Ph.D., an indus­trial engi­neer at North­eastern Uni­ver­sity who received a Health Care Inno­va­tion Award grant from the Center for Medicare and Med­icaid Inno­va­tion to bring tech­nical exper­tise in sys­tems engi­neering and oper­a­tions man­age­ment to health care. Ben­neyan hopes “to demon­strate how engi­neers can mean­ing­fully partner with health sys­tems by applying sys­tems improve­ment methods used in other com­plex indus­tries in ways that will impact the triple aim of better health, better care, and lower costs.”
