With new partnerships and networks announced regularly the healthcare industry has become fiercely competitive in recent years as healthcare organizations make every effort to improve the quality of patient care and control costs. Because the healthcare industry is the largest sector of almost every economy, healthcare organizations’ efforts to turn themselves into better competitors are attracting growing attention across the globe. The GCHSE 2014 will shed light on the role of healthcare systems engineering in this endeavor.
The GCHSE 2014 is a highly anticipated conference due to the popularity of the field. The GCHSE is set to become an exciting event with the potential for continued growth throughout the years. The GCHSE will be a forum for academics, managers and solution providers, which brings together researchers and practitioners from all over the world, promoting opportunities to share experiences, debate ideas, identify tendencies, and introduce the latest developments in the largely multidisciplinary field of Healthcare Systems Engineering. This is especially important since this field can largely benefit from increased collaboration.
The GCHSE 2014 will be held at Istanbul Technical University, Management Faculty, Macka Campus on August 5-8, 2014. Istanbul Technical University prides itself on being the third oldest university in the world.
Istanbul is the only city in the world built on two continents. Its rich history has given it a multitude of museums, historical buildings and mosques, Byzantine churches and Roman aqueducts. This exciting venue is alive with the hustle and bustle of business and trade which for centuries has made it a vital trading hub between east and west. Straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul is the largest and most monumental city in Turkey, and is a melting pot of cultures which mix harmoniously on both sides of a city split geographically by the Bosphorus strait. This bustling city is home to over 13 million people, and from 5 to 8 August 2014, will also be home to the GCHSE 2014.
