From optimizing and improving emergency health care delivery to developing a new artificial heart, Systems Institute researchers and their collaborators bring a holistic approach to understanding the high-level context that is being addressed and an array of tools to explore and connect the components of the systems that interact with system health.

Systems thinking is foundational to understanding health and many aspects of health sciences. For instance, research on childhood obesity has shown that eating behaviors are influenced by interacting factors at the biological, community, and broader socio-economic levels. Systems science and engineering provide a suite of qualitative and quantitative methods that enables health science researchers to investigate such interactions with depth and rigor. In addition, systems models produce highly visual representations that can be effectively used to communicate complex ideas to policy makers and to guide the development of holistic, multi-level interventions.

During the past few years at Johns Hopkins, systems-inspired collaborative activities in health sciences have attracted new funding from NIH, CDC, NSF, and other foundations. Research projects range from streamlining clinical trials and community health care optimization to the design of citywide interventions for childhood obesity. Collaborations are both domestic and international, and aim to provide insights on health problems worldwide. Each application must be understood in its proper context but commonalities exist and systems tools often help researchers explore these connections as well. We invite you to learn more about our efforts and to join us in bringing systems solutions to our most important need: our health.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”full_width_background” full_screen_row_position=”middle” equal_height=”yes” content_placement=”top” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” class=”section-top-padding section-bottom-padding” id=”read-more” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom” shape_type=””][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” el_class=”custom-split-line-heading” width=”1/4″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][split_line_heading]Current
