In this paper we analyse the renal transplant waiting list of the País Valencià in Spain, using Queueing theory. The customers of this queue are patients with end-stage renal failure waiting for a kidney transplant. We set up a simplified model to represent the flow of the customers through the system, and perform Bayesian inference to estimate parameters… (More)
Bulk service queues and simulation tools have been used to analyze the congestion of the waiting list for renal transplants in the PaísValencì a, Spain, from January 1997 to December 1999. The main characteristics of the queue model are the arrivals of patients onto the waiting list, the process of cadaveric donations, and the number of kidneys, either one… (More)

The Spanish Rare Diseases Registries Research Network (SpainRDR) is a project aimed to build the National Rare Diseases Registry in Spain based on the input of two different methods: patient outcome research registries and population-based registries. The project has been approved within the IRDiRC framework and is co-funded by the Institute of Health… (More)
