Abstract: Healthcare is a huge sector of our economy and touches all of our lives. It is also a place where efficiency, process improvement, and advanced technology can improve outcomes, both health and financial. However, providing care to a patient and advancing new technologies do not always align. This can be due to a misalignment of the language of medicine and the language of engineering, or a misalignment of the goals of medicine and the goals of engineering. In this seminar, Dr. Adams will talk about some of her active and developing projects which incorporate new technology in healthcare applications. She will focus on the alignment of clinical goals with technological advances and a mutually beneficial relationship between nursing and engineering on a project.
Biography: Dr. Adams conducts research focused on community responses and collaborations addressing the opioid crisis, substance use, and mental health. As an associate member of the Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering (RCHE), she works closely with engineers to develop innovative tools for use by communities and organizations. Dr. Adams applies concepts from Systems Thinking and Complex Adaptive Models to evaluate community resources and build collaboration between entities. She also focuses on including human factors and end-user perspectives into new technologies to improve healthcare delivery and organizational efficiency. Dr. Adams has created educational videos, presentations, and modules about substance use and recovery that are approachable to those in academia as well as the general public.
