Dr. Badreddin is an Assistant Professor at Northern Arizona University. He works in the area of Model Driven Engineering and Healthcare Analytics. He is the head of the “Model Drive Healthcare Analytics (MD-HA) research lab”. The lab focuses on applying cutting edge technologies to solve some of the healthcare challenges, such as patient flow, delivering time critical care, clinical pathway management and high performance high efficiency care. Dr. badreddin is actively involved in collaborative projects with a few hospitals in North America. He is an IBM Research Fellow and is the author of “Human-Centric Business Process Management”.
John Georgas is Associate Director, Informatics and Computing Assistant Chair and Associate Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He holds the Ph.D and M.S. degrees from the Department of Informatics at the University of California, Irvine. He also holds a B.S. degree in Computer Science from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
John’s research interests include self-adaptive software systems, software architecture, domain-specific architectures, social aspects of software engineering, component-based systems, architectural styles, architectural description languages, and systems-of-systems modeling. His doctoral work focused on supporting self-adaptive software using an architecture- and policy-based approach with an emphasis on the robotics domain.
Relentless pursue of removal of waste in healthcare processes. Started “Kaizen thinking” and driving lean daily management across the organization implementing 325 suggestions in FY’13.
So far in FY’14 a total of 1200 implemented suggestions. Started NAH’s Center of Process Excellence department which now has 2 lean coordinators and 3 fellows.
Certified Black Belt lean sigma – pursuing Master BB through Progressive consulting.
