About Orgcomplexity

My think tank, Orgcomplexity, explores the larger policy implications of complexity on health, urban affairs and social issues. Orgcomplexity uses the method of translational policy analysis- translating research to applications in policy. While there are many “systems science” blogs that lean toward the “Science of networks”, this blog venue will be used to highlight the applications of systems theory and systems methodology to healthcare and social issues while keeping current with the “science of systems”. Orgcomplexity as a credo will infuse structural power of networks into human agency in health and society, very broadly defined.

I was competitively selected by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2012 to its Institute on Systems Science and Health (ISSH), where I was trained by Dr. Doug Luke (Washington U- St. Louis) in network analysis and I teach a graduate level course in Social Networks and Health. I am also a member of the Bertalanffy Center for the Study of Systems Science (Vienna, Austria). I am a co-editor of U.S. Health Policy Gateway (Duke University).

A ScoopIt page “Orgcomplexity-systems approaches to health policy” is being curated by me as well. ScoopIt will not be used for original content suited for my blog. Orgcomplexity.wordpress.com will be the primary place for all things Orgcomplexity.

All the best,

Michele Battle-Fisher

One thought on “About Orgcomplexity

  1. It was interesting finding this site. I have a background in medicine and left it to focus on systems thinking more. My focus is health and sustainability from a systems perspective and that has led to some interesting places.
