Hello ,   

As the summer season approaches, many college students are heading off to the beach, but here at EE many of our interns are continuing to work on projects at Geisinger and Just Born. Their dedication is greatly appreciated and we look forward to working with them throughout the summer and in the future. Hopefully, they will also schedule in some beach time.

Universities Unite to Help Healthcare!

Here at EE we find the best and brightest from local universities to assist us with projects. Our interns provide our clients with fresh ideas, enthusiasm and a strong work ethic. Read further about the Healthcare Enabled Logistics Project that our interns are developing and implementing at  Geisinger Health System.


Geisinger H.E.L.P Project Goal:  Return over 10% of nursing time back for patient care through our Healthcare Enabled Logistics Project.  With over 35 different groups delivering supplies and equipment to in-patient units, this complex system is being modeled and optimized to gain control, reduce waste, and increase effectiveness for frontline healthcare providers.


The Interns:

John R Pulaski '11, Bloomsburg University

Electronics Engineering Technology

Project Responsibilities: My duties include collecting data from the Geisinger departments and then organizing it so that it can be input into the model. What I really love about Geisinger is the fact that by working here, and by doing my job right, I am helping the people who save people's lives. 


Joshua Robert Glasure '12, Bloomsburg University

Electrical Engineering Technology

Project Responsibilities: I am working on inpatient floors collecting necessary data for the Simulation model.  Ultimately, this will help improve the logistical flow of supply chain products throughout the hospital. I look forward to working at Geisinger throughout the summer!


Aaron J. Homiak '11, Bloomsburg University

Electronic Engineering Technology

Project Responsibilities: I collect data through first-hand observations, department logs and video logs in an effort to find usage statistics, volumes, patterns, routing, etc. Then, I input, organize, analyze and prepare the data to form the Simulation Model. I really enjoy learning and experiencing new things, the challenge of trying to figure out exactly how things work (finding the order in chaos) and then working to make them better!


Mustafa Kazim Topuz '11, Lehigh University

Industrial Engineering, Information and Systems Engineering Minor

Project Responsibilities: I started last semester and I learned the SIMUL8 modeling software first and then I modeled the pneumatic tube system. More recently, I have been working to optimize the tube system for faster throughput as my Master's Thesis.


Seth Hostetler '12, Penn State University

Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research

Project Responsibilities: My responsibilities include building a simulation model of the hospital's logistics and related activities.  This includes the actual modeling, as well as data analysis.  I am also involved in determining best methods for improvements to the logistics operations and will also be evaluating these improvements via the simulation model. I look forward to continuing to work on the Geisinger project as well as my dissertation research, which will create a support tool to aid in the decision making process when designing the operations for hospitals' internal supply chain.
