Abstract

This work analyzes strategies for better allocation of surgeon resources in an elective surgical practice. Among the metrics considered to evaluate the assignment of tasks are OR-to-Clinic ratio per provider, OR-to-Clinic ratio per day, patient access to clinic, and patient access to surgery. In addition, a simulation model is used to evaluate the clinical and surgical capacity of the calendar to identify potential inefficiencies and propose strategic changes to the calendar.
