The overall vision of the New England Healthcare Engineering Partnership (NEHCEP) is to integrate systems engineering principles and methods into the fabric of VA healthcare operations by building a unique collaboration to develop, test, train, and spread innovative engineering solutions, with the objective that Veterans Health Administration (VHA) become a self-improving system with robust capabilities to address new needs arising over time.  To accomplish this objective, NEHCEP has created a strong synergistic partnership between VISN 1, Northeastern University, and other academic partners that leverages (1) our successful history, commitment, and improvement infrastructure, (2) existing VISN 1 initiatives, and (3) leading national academic experts in healthcare systems engineering and related process analysis, improvement, and optimization methods.
