Network Analysis: A Methodological Approach for Studying Collaborations in Healthcare Systems

Brown Bag Lunch – Please RSVP.

Healthcare organizations are complex systems with interacting and interdependent components. Understanding these complex systems requires innovative methods to analyze and depict their structure. Network analysis is a set of techniques that can be used to map these complex systems and quantify the interactions of their components. Healthcare providers are critical components of the healthcare system and their efficient collaboration is essential for improving care delivery to patients. In this presentation, we will discuss how the application of social network analysis on large-scale health data can be used to assess the impact of healthcare provider collaboration on patient outcomes.
