  • learn how to identify and solve efficiency problems in healthcare systems, and
  • learn from experienced faculty members with proven track records in the field.

This twelve (12) month Executive Master of Science in Health Systems–Manhattan Program is designed to provide individuals with a bachelor’s degree the opportunity to gain sufficient knowledge and skills for modeling, analyzing and/or designing healthcare delivery systems and processes.


The Industrial and Systems Engineering and Systems Science disciplines play a significant role in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare systems. Over the years, they have helped healthcare facilities improve total quality management, scheduling and sequencing in outpatient clinics, and operational control, such as medical records and patient turnaround time in emergency rooms to name a few. With the ultimate goal being continuous process improvement, the research methodology looks at current work flow, identifies bottlenecks, and finally proposes solutions and recommendations, using a number of tools, such as modeling and simulation, problem solving, statistical analysis, operations research, human factors engineering and data mining.  The focus will be on improving safety, cost, quality, and efficiency of healthcare delivery processes.
