Project #25773 - Case Study-Process Analysis/Design (Healthcare)

Only 3 questions (3, 4, & 7-part 1)from a case study (attached).

 

3.   A desired outcome of the new triage system is to off-load work from MDs onto NPs. 

 

  • How cost-effective is this strategy, considering the different service rates of MDs and NPs? (Use salary data given in case. Make necessary assumptions.)

 

4.   Assuming 5 MDs on duty at an average (each with a service rate of 3.1 patients per hour) and that all patients (143 per day) see an MD:

 

  • calculate the effect of a 4% increase in the arrival rate on the expected wait time in queue: Wq (use Queuing Formulas, assume uniform arrival across 10 working hours per day, note that it’s a multiple server system drawing from a single line – M/M/S).
    • Comment on this effect.

 

 

7.   What other actions, if any, would you recommend to Ms. Angell, specifically in regards to:

  • managing capacity
