Financial considerations and poor planning drive some surgery patients home too early, concludes a pair of logistical studies conducted by researchers at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. The studies show a correlation between readmission rates and how full the hospital was at the time of discharge, suggesting that patients went home before they were healthy enough. The researchers recommend better planning and other logistical solutions to avoid these problems.
PROMISED GAINS PROVE ELUSIVE AS EMERGENCY ROOMS GO DIGITAL
On the afternoon of December 10th, 21 Smith School students waited nervously in a large classroom, standing in groups of three before displays that illustrated their team's application of the most widely used decision support methodology in the world, the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). The poster session is part of the final project in the graduate course, Applications of Management Science. Bruce Golden, professor and holder of the France-Merrick Chair in Management Science, has taught the course for two years.
Symptoms resulting from a bioterrorism attack could be alarmingly similar to those of the flu. A computer model developed by Sean Barnes, assistant professor of operations management, aims to identify one from the other by their very different transmission dynamics.
College Park, MD - September 1, 1998 - Dean Howard Frank and the faculty of the Robert H. Smith School of Business are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Bruce L. Golden to the France-Merrick Chair of Management Science.
The France-Merrick Chair recognizes leading-edge research in management science and operations research. It also honors a genuine commitment to teaching excellence and the development of future business leaders to compete in the information age and the knowledge economy.
Surgeons have a great deal of freedom in when they schedule surgeries, and they are also in charge of releasing their patients. As post-operative recovery beds fill up and there is less space available, do surgeons release patients earlier than they otherwise would, in order to empty those beds? They do, according to a study by Bruce Golden, France-Merrick Chair in Management Science, and his PhD student David Anderson.
