YPSILANTI —Eastern Michigan University MBA student Jarrod Sandel, of Ann Arbor, has been honored by the Association for Marketing and Health Care Research (AMHCR) for a paper he co-authored.
Sandel, a graduate assistant, and Anne L. Balazs, head of EMU’s Marketing Department, wrote a paper entitled, “The Evolving Nature of Home Health Care: The Use of Technology to Meet Demand.”
The paper is a literature review that traces the development of home health care and the markets it serves, and covers emerging technologies, practices and personnel used to administer care to patients in their home setting.
“I’m very pleased (that) the work Dr. Balazs and I put into the paper was rewarded,” said Sandel, who is majoring in supply chain management and expects to graduate in August.
“Jarrod is a multi-talented student” Balazs said. “His multiple positions uniquely qualify him to address the application of technology in the health care industry. I was extremely proud to introduce Jarrod to my colleagues at the conference.”
The award was announced at the conclusion of the AMHCR’s annual conference Feb. 25-27 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Sandel works at the University of Michigan Health System as a user liaison for a clinical IT application.
EMU’s College of Business has been ranked among the “Best Business Schools” five straight years, according to The Princeton Review. The college hosts the nation’s only Ethos Week each year in March and is also the first to create an “Ethos Statement” and “Ethos Honor Society.” Visit cob.emich.edu for more information
