Monitoring Service Quality in Hospital Emergency Departments

Presented by Computer Information Systems
Nov. 30, 2 p.m. Eastern time 

Presenter: Devashish Das, Ph.D., assistant professor, University of South Florida

This presentation mostly focuses on building a statistical monitoring scheme for service systems that experience time varying arrivals of customers and have time varying service rates. Motivated by the emergency department of the Mayo Clinic, the goal of the proposed method is to build a statistical monitoring framework that generates an alarm when the quality of service has changed. The proposed method is able to identify patterns of inefficiency or delay in service that are hard to detect using traditional statistical monitoring algorithms.
