Predicting Daily Surgical Volumes Using Probabilistic Estimates of Providers’ Future Availability

Sat, November 18, 10:00 to 11:30am, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Floor: Lobby Level, L402


Probability-based models are developed using information from a variety of datasets to
predict daily surgical volumes weeks in advance. The quest wasmotivated by the need to
make real-time adjustments to staff capacity and reallocation of the operating room block
time based on predicted future demand.We test the notion thatmore data always leads to
better predictions.
