SSE Prof. Zhongyuan (Annie) Yu on Data Intensive Model-Based Knowledge Representation for Healthcare Decision Support Systems
From Rachel Narozniak
In her talk, titled "Data Intensive Model-Based Knowledge Representation for Healthcare Decision Support Systems," Dr. Yu provides two decision support system demonstrations. The first is a decision support simulation prototype that explores factors that influence healthcare providers’ decisions to adopt evidence-based interventions. The second is a visualization framework that aids healthcare policymakers and hospital administrators to visualize, identify, and optimize the geographic variations of healthcare resources.
Dr. Yu is a Teaching Associate Professor within the SSE whose research addresses and generalizes complex socio-technical problems with an emphasis on healthcare delivery. She focuses on conducting a multidisciplinary field of scientific investigation that studies how various factors including socioeconomic factors and advanced technologies affect system performance.
The "SSE Dean’s Virtual Seminar Series: The Future of Systems" is presented by Dean Yehia Massoud and offers weekly lectures each Wednesday at noon for Stevens undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, administration and guests. At each session, SSE faculty present a 20-minute lecture, followed by a five-to-10 minute Q&A session.
The series has been created to keep students informed on the advances of faculty research, and the mission of the School of Systems & Enterprises as a leader in systems science and engineering. Each lecture will be recorded and made available on Kaltura for those who are unable to attend the live Zoom sessions.
