Brief Bio
Omar Badreddin is an Assistant Professor at University of Texas. He is an expert 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. He 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" book.


The aim of MDA-HC is to discuss recent research advancements and applications, and to bring together an interdisciplinary community to develop a research, educational and industrial agenda for the application of software engineering in the healthcare sector. Healthcare environments and systems are becoming increasingly complex. With this complexity comes significant challenges, as well as opportunities. The MDA discipline in Software Engineering has brought many innovations that promises better management of complexities. There is great potential in bringing such advancements to healthcare.
