In this research we develop a model that prescribes the (near) optimal appointment date for a patient at the moment this patient makes his request at the outpatient clinic. In order to differentiate between different types of patients, such as new patients, control patients and several grades of priorities, we distinguish two categories of patients. One category is characterised by a maximum recommended waiting time. Since the actual scheduled appointment time is reflected in costs, the sooner… CONTINUE READING
