Sridhar Tayur Publishes Comprehensive Handbook of Health Care Analytics

John Wiley & Sons Inc. recently published “Handbook of Healthcare Analytics: Theoretical Minimum for Conducting 21st Century Research on Healthcare Operations,” edited by Sridhar Tayur, Ford Distinguished Research Chair, Professor of Operations Management, and his former Ph.D. student, now at Johns Hopkins, Tinglong Dai (Ph.D. 2013).

The book encompasses a broad summary of the health care industry, from a comprehensive explanation of the industry’s organizational structure to focused analyses of specialty topics such as organ transplantation and concierge medicine.

The text includes chapters provided by operations-focused scholars working in the field of health care research, including the following Tepper School professors:

  • Soo-Haeng Cho, Associate Professor of Operations Management
  • Willem-Jan van Hoeve, Carnegie Bosch Associate Professor of Operations Research
  • Alan Scheller-Wolf, Richard M. Cyert Professor of Operations Management, Senior Associate Dean of Faculty and Research
  • Mustafa Akan, Associate Professor of Operations Management

Contributors also include the following Tepper School Ph.D. graduates:

  • Senthil Veeraraghavan (Ph.D. 2004), now at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business
  • Jayashankar Swaminathan (Ph.D. 1996), now at the University of North Carolina
  •  Srinagesh Gavirneni (Ph.D. 1997), now at Cornell University

“I am thrilled to share the publication of this important volume,” Tayur said. “This holistic analysis of the health care industry represents some of the brightest minds in analytics research, as well as physicians and senior healthcare executives. I thank my Tepper peers; CMU colleague Rema Padman from the Heinz School of Public Policy and Management; and my colleagues at Stanford, Harvard, Chicago, MIT, Cornell, and other great research universities for their contributions. It was especially a treat to work closely again with our Ph.D. graduates who have themselves become intellectual leaders in these institutions.”

The text is available through Wiley’s online library, and a print version will be available beginning in early September 2018.
