Larry was awarded an IAHC Seed Grant to work with Greenville Health System to develop information technology-assisted methods to improve patient flow in perioperative services. The technology he is researching will allow hands-free documentation of events during patient flow and promote coordination between different units of the hospital. This research is related to an NSF-funded project conducted in conjunction with Kevin Taaffe and Joel Greenstein in the Department of Industrial Engineering.
