Christopher Tang, UCLA Distinguished Professor of Decisions, Operations and Technology Management and the Edward W. Carter Chair in Business Administration, and his co-authors recently received an honorable mention for their paper titled “The Impact of Reimbursement Policy on Patient Welfare, Readmission Rate and Waiting Time in a Public Healthcare System: Fee-for-Service vs. Bundled Payment.”
The best paper competition was sponsored by the China Business Initiative of the Jerome A. Chazen Institute of International Business at Columbia University. The awards were presented at the recent annual Conference of Chinese Scholars Association for Management Science and Engineering (CSAMSE). The theme of the 2016 CSAMSE, Internet Plus and Scientific Management, reflects a desire to focus on the new challenges for the management practice of the traditional industries in the background of internet and mobile social networks, and the corresponding data-driven management techniques and tools. Scholars in MSE from around the world were invited to present their research at the conference.
