David Scheinker is the Director of Systems Design and Collaborative Research at the Stanford Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. He is the Founder and Director of SURF Stanford Medicine, a group that brings together students and faculty from the university with clinicians and administrators from hospitals to improve the quality of care using operations research methodology. He received a BA and an MA in mathematics from The University of Pennsylvania in 2005 and a PhD in theoretical math from The University of California San Diego under Jim Agler in 2011. Before coming to Stanford, he was a Joint Research Fellow at The MIT Sloan School of Management and Massachusetts General Hospital. His current areas of research include mathematical control theory, the applications of operations research in healthcare, and functional analysis. Concurrently with his university appointments, David has spent time teaching theoretical math to gifted 11 and 12 year old students for the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth.

Andrew Shin, MD is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology) at Stanford University School of Medicine and associate medical director of cardiovascular intensive care at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. He completed his pediatric residency, along with dual fellowship training in cardiology and critical care, at Children’s Hospital Boston. As medical director of the Center for Analytics and Clinical Effectiveness at Stanford Children’s Health, Andrew utilizes a framework of microsystems, design and high-reliability principles, to explore opportunities to optimize value in pediatric healthcare delivery. His quality improvement projects have included the successful reduction of hospital-acquired conditions, standardization of communication during patient-care transitions, and the reduction of costly and unnecessary resource utilization. Academically, Andrew’s research leverages high-throughput analytics to understand patterns derived by machine learning within the continuous stream of data generated by inpatient care. Combining his roles in analytics and clinical effectiveness has led to safe and sustained reductions in hospital length of stay and readmissions to the hospital and emergency department.
