A branch-and-price approach for integrating nurse and surgery scheduling

Jeroen Beliën, Erik Demeulemeester
2008 European Journal of Operational Research  
First of all, we present a concrete model that integrates both the nurse and the operating room scheduling process.  ...  The operating room is considered to be the main engine and hence the main generator of variance in the hospital. The purpose of this paper is threefold.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank the anonymous referees for their useful comments that have undoubtedly improved the quality of this paper.  ...

Optimization and Simulation of Orthopedic Spine Surgery Cases at Mayo Clinic

Asli Ozen, Yariv Marmor, Thomas Rohleder, Hari Balasubramanian, Jeanne Huddleston, Paul Huddleston
2016 Manufacturing & Service Operations Management  
This variability along with patient preferences driving scheduling decisions resulted in both low operating room (OR) utilization and significant overtime for surgical teams at Mayo Clinic.  ...  at the time of case scheduling.  ...  Since spine surgeries tend to be long and variable, an operating room is dedicated to each surgeon on each day that he/she operates.  ...
