Abstract:Integration of GP Posts and Emergency Departments is highly being encouraged by various parties due to increased effectiveness of healthcare and perceived cost benefits. However, since cost structures and budgeting of GP Posts and Emergency Departments are different, it is hard to quantify the financial changes occurring after a possible integration. The delivered model uses queuing theory to determine changes in patient streams. By applying financial regulations, the implications of integration can be financially quantified with the increase of workload. The financial model delivered is a good start to examine financial implications of integration of GP Posts with Emergency Departments at peripheral hospitals. Scenarios under different financial and patient parameters can be examined.
