IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine's unique aim is to publish original work in the intersection of engineering and clinical translation. The journal's focus is interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers, healthcare providers, and industry and aims to publish results and best practices from these translational efforts.
Mr. Konkani is a PhD candidate in the Systems Engineering program in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Oakland University who received his bachelor's and master's degrees in Biomedical Engineering from Karnatak University, India and Wright State University. Mr. Konkani’s current research involves applying systems engineering and human factors approaches to help resolve the problem of increasing noise and false alarms from the medical devices in hospital Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and Operation Rooms (ORs), for which he received the American College of Clinical Engineering's (ACCE's) annual graduate student paper award.
