All over the world, healthcare organizations are being challenged by obstacles related to the aging of the population and other global trends. It is vital that the complex and growing demands in healthcare delivery are tackled swiftly and optimally. With the abundance of data available, operations researchers across the globe can pool resources and share solutions to come up with innovative ideas to remedy shortcomings within current healthcare systems. The 2017 INFORMS Healthcare Conference, being held July 26-28 in Rotterdam, Netherlands, is the ideal forum for O.R. professionals to come together to optimize health service operations and outcomes.

The conference with be led by conference chair Joris Van de Klundert, Institute of Health Policy and Management, Erasmus University, along with program chairs Edwin Romeijn, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Sandra Sulz, Erasmus University Rotterdam. The program is organized into nine tracks of top issues that are impacting the healthcare industry today. These tracks are Disease and Treatment Modeling, Healthcare Data Analytics and Machine Learning, Health and Humanitarian Logistics, Health Information Technology and Management, Health Operations Management, Health Systems in Low and Middle Income Countries, Medical Decision-Making, Personalized Medicine, and Public Health and Policy-Making.

When attendees are not engaged in high-level talks they can take part in some of the other events that round out the program for the conference. The INFORMS Health Applications Society sponsors a student paper competition. Students are asked to submit either oral or poster presentations that will be evaluated by leading healthcare scholars on quality, novelty and importance of methodology, contribution to healthcare research and potential for impact on practice. The finalists must present their work during a special session at the conference. There are also poster sessions during the conference that are not related to the student paper competition. These poster session presentations allow authors to present projects that are in the early stages of development, and thus benefit from the interactive critique, suggestions and encouragement from colleagues working in similar areas.

The conference will take place at the De Doelen International Congress Centre, in the heart of Rotterdam, which is an emerging world leader in the healthcare and medical industry. A group rate is available at the Rotterdam Marriott, which is linked to the Congress Centre and just a two-minute walk away from Rotterdam Central Station. There are only a limited number of rooms booked at the INFORMS group rate, so make your reservations as early as possible.
