Improving chemotherapy infusion operations through the simulation of scheduling heuristics: a case study

Health Systems, 2, 1–16.

By: R. Slocum*, H. Jones n, M. Fletcher n, B. McConnell n, T. Hodgson n, J. Taheri n, J. Wilson n

author keywords: Discrete event simulation (DES); scheduling; healthcare; chemotherapy
TL;DR: The case study examines the impact of altering the current schedule, where all patients arrive at 8:00 AM, to a schedule that assigns patients to two or three different appointment times based on the expected length of their chemotherapy infusion. (via Semantic Scholar)
