Modeling a New Computer Framework for Managing Healthcare Organizations
Balancing and Optimizing Patient Satisfaction, Owner Satisfaction, and Medical Resources, 1st Edition
By Soraia Oueida
The proposed model in Modeling a New Computer Framework for Managing Healthcare Organizations is a solution framework rather than just a language. This framework can interest different decision makers on different levels in the medical institution organizational hierarchy. The framework can be used by management to improve the performance of medical organizations. The framework is targeting decision makers to hire resources, enhance workflows and/or both. The approach followed in this book proposal targets all medical institutions that have different resource types. It also targets researchers and graduate students who are interested in managing resources and workflows and enhancing medical processes. The approach takes into consideration satisfaction level of management, employees and patients and it comes up with a plan to target the maximum attained reward based on the predefined constrains by the management.
Modeling a New Computer Framework for Managing Healthcare Organizations is important since it guides designers and system implementers in a step by step approach to take optimal decisions for resource allocation and it also helps designers and management to detect deficiencies in the ongoing process and fix them or enhance them. This book leads designers in a step by step approach.
The book was the fruit of many research methodologies and comprehensive applications. Several techniques were applied including but not limited to: Mathematical modeling, simulation, Petri net workflows, optimization, healthcare systems, etc. These techniques helped in identifying the problems in complex industrial systems such as the healthcare organization and resulted to a better utilization and enhancement of the main three satisfaction factors: patient, management and medical resource.
This work is a research conducted as part of a PhD thesis awarded with high distinction. After countless hours of work and research, it is now available to broader audiences as a one valuable book entity.
