The new statewide health information exchange, i.e., the Mass HIway, is a large and complex platform dedicated to electronically connecting health record systems across provider settings throughout the Commonwealth. This is a considerable challenge in a state that has the highest number of active physicians, 415.5 per 100,000 citizens (Association of American Medical Colleges, 2011).
Repeatable Large Systems Cyber Impact Analysis
For decades organizations across the spectrum of private industry and government have noted the limitations to information sharing and the resulting problems caused by stovepipe information systems.
Exploration into Environmental Assessment of Electrical Products
The Material Systems Laboratory’s research with the National Electrical Manufacturers Association and the California Integrated Waste Management Board used network models and life cycle assessment to evaluate the economic and environmental impacts of battery recycling.
Making Lean Thinking Part of the DNA of Engineering Program Management
Large-scale, complex engineering systems can produce tremendous societal benefits such as hybrid cars, road networks, GPS navigation, space travel, and smart cities. Managing these large-scale engineering programs is one of the most difficult, risky, and potentially rewarding undertakings an organization can attempt.
The rapid pace of change in the automotive industry makes this an exciting time for MIT researchers to partner with Ford to advance technologies in the automotive industry.
