What is your level of experience with Operations Research, Management Science, or Analytics?

System to monitor 100K+ individuals treated monthly at ~ 1500 federally funded clinics. Reduced time to reports from years to hours. Cut costs ~ 1/10th math model of health care system to evaluate alternative reimbursements, pros and cons of HMOs. Used by EO and Congress. Evaluate alternative income transfer programs (such as social security, taxes), under alternative assumptions of employment, rates, etc. Known as TRIM. See IEEE. Evaluated EEOC, Office of Federal Contract Compliance. Identified data systems, converted to uniform data, analyzed it. Invented technology to measure fatty acids in blood. Consequences: Americans do not eat enough essential fats (w3s, w6s), eat too many trans. Recommended manufacturing, diet changes to lower trans FA, eat more w3s. Methods to improve wellness, prevention. Identify biomarkers that predict health and disease. Increase longevity; make biological age far lower than chronological age. Improve government function via better data systems.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

Meet people, develop projects Used to write cost/effectiveness newsletter in health for OR society. Would like to work with others to do it again. Writing about the meaning of life, singularity, children’s education, health care.
