STD Engineering (Sociotechnical Design and Engineering) in Health Care


Point of Contact: Sean Goggins
Health care is a complex ecosystem of providers, insurers, financial teams, administration and patients. Each team uses process and technology in distinct ways, often unique to each location where care is provided. There have been many studies of health care, but to date the development of a theory of sociotechnical design and engineering in this context has not been articulated. The aim of this project is active participation in the development of theories salient for advancing health care outcomes deliberately, through the codesign of technologies and social structures.
