Abstract

This paper presents a scheduling policy that aims to reduce patient wait time for surgical treatment by coordinating clinical and surgical appointments. This study is of interest since the lack of coordination of these resources could lead to an inefficient utilization of available capacity, and most importantly, could cause delays in patient access to surgical treatment. A simulation model is used to analyze the impact of the policy on patient access and surgical throughput.
