Sung J. Shim, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Computing and Decision Sciences, received the Bright Idea in Information Technology for his entry titled, “Simulation for emergency care process reengineering in hospitals.” Shim collaborated with Arun Kumar of RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.

Using computer simulation, the paper sought to model the hospital emergency care process and evaluate the effects of proposed changes to improve patient wait times in the process. The results demonstrated that the changes proposed (adding another payment station and a new short-stay ward) can shorten patient wait times.

Shim joined the Stillman School of Business in 2001. His research findings, which center on information systems implementation, business process re-engineering and technology management and strategy, have appeared in INFOR: Information Systems and Operational Research, Information Systems Management, Journal of Computer Information Systems and Online Information Review.
