Abstract:Motivation & research goal: A couple of years ago, Dr. Horacio E. Oduber Hospitaal (HOH) at Aruba started project ‘Hunto Miho’, which means ‘better together’. With this project HOH wants to realize their ambition to become one of the best hospitals in the region. A data analysis, which is part of this project, shows an operating room (OR) utilization rate of 69% (anesthesia time included, changeovers excluded), which OR management thinks is too low. Besides that, the analysis shows much overtime and many early ends. OR management thinks it is possible to increase the OR performance and wants to reconsider the current way of scheduling. Therefore, we analyze the current OR scheduling process, measure the current OR performance and design an alternative scheduling strategy. We compose the following research goal: Evaluate the current surgical scheduling process and design a scheduling strategy to improve the OR performance.
