The ultimate objective of the research reported herein is to design an admissions scheduling system which can control hospital occupancy. This paper reports on the initial phase, of the research--demonstrating the technical feasibility of developing a simulation model of patient arrivals to and discharges from a hospital, which can be used to design the scheduling system. The specific steps that were accomplished for demonstrating technical feasibility of model development were: (1) develop a… CONTINUE READING
