CARTE/CHE Joint Seminar: Data and Decision Sciences to Support Health System Planning in Ontario
January 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Centre for Analytics and AI Engineering (CARTE) and the Centre for Healthcare Engineering (CHE) jointly host Dr. Saba Vahid from Ontario Health who will discuss how data and decision sciences support health system planning in Ontario.
Abstract: Information technology solutions that have been deployed across the Ontario health system have enabled collection of large amounts of clinical and administrative data. These data can be leveraged to conduct analytics that support health system planning. Through examples of real-world descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics projects, we discuss how data science is helping inform policy and planning in healthcare and what challenges still exist in the implementation. We also discuss what skill sets could best prepare students to play an active role in this field.
Speaker Bio: Dr. Saba Vahid leads the advanced analytics team at Ontario Health – Cancer Care Ontario, where she oversees the development and implementation of analytics tools. She holds a Ph.D. in operations research from the University of British Columbia. Her areas of expertise include optimization and simulation modelling, utilized to address planning and prediction questions in Ontario’s healthcare system.
