Spreadsheet Models for Inspiring Analytical Thought Sam Savage --- Stanford Univ., Dept. of EES/OR, 417 Terman, Stanford, CA 94305 , (email@example.com)
- Health care is fraught with problems which should yield to analysis.¨ However, most managers in the field lack the time and training for¨ traditional OR solutions. Simple spreadsheets demonstrating¨ analytical concepts may inspire management to simultaneously reduce¨ costs and raise quality.
Physician Report Cards: New Directions for Managerial Control Jon A. Chilingerian, Mitchell Clavin, Sarita Bhalotra --- Brandeis Univ., Box 9110, Heller Sch., Waltham, MA 02250 , (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- We report on an efficiency study of surgeons performing CABG in¨ Pennsylvania. DEA was used to estimate efficiency scores. By¨ studying the interaction of efficiency with the patient outcomes,¨ the best performing physicians are identified.
On Fuzzy Set Contributions to Medical Decision Making Augustine O. Esogbue --- GA Inst. of Tech., Sch. of ISyE, 225 North Ave., Atlanta, GA 30332-0205, (email@example.com)
- We consider 2 important aspects in medicine that exhibit medical¨ decision making in which classical mathematical modeling is shown to¨ have certain deficiencies by failing to address the presence of¨ uncertainties of the nonprobablistic type. We show how fuzzy sets,¨ and now neural networks, are used in conjunction with fuzzy...
