The Center for Healthcare Operations and Intelligence (NOIS - Núcleo de Operações e Inteligência em Saúde) is a group formed by students, professors and researchers of the Department of Industrial Engineering at PUC-Rio and TECGRAF Institute, in partnership with researchers from FIOCRUZ, USP and IDOR.

Our main goal is to scale and optimize Healthcare resources, by incorporating Data Science techniques, thus providing evidence for data-driven decision making. We believe that effective transformation is made on dynamic, collaborative and interdisciplinary environments.
