Real-time operational feedback: daily discharge rate as a novel hospital efficiency metric

H. J. Wong, R. C. Wu, M. Caesar, H. Abrams, D. Morra
2010 BMJ Quality and Safety  
Discussion In this paper, the authors propose daily discharge rate as a novel real-time metric of hospital operational discharge efficiency and compare it with average length of stay.  ...  Part of delivering quality care means providing it in a timely, efficient manner. Improving the efficiency of care requires measurement.  ...  When used as a metric to monitor variation via control charts, the census' impact is taken into account as the warning and control limits vary depending on the calculated value.  ...

A Capture-Safety Checking Metric Based on Transition-Time-Relation for At-Speed Scan Testing

Kohei MIYASE, Ryota SAKAI, Xiaoqing WEN, Masao ASO, Hiroshi FURUKAWA, Yuta YAMATO, Seiji KAJIHARA
2013 IEICE transactions on information and systems  
This paper presents a novel metric called the Transition-Time-Relation-based (TTR) metric which takes transition time relations into consideration in capture-safety checking.  ...  However, previous capturesafety checking metrics suffer from inadequate accuracy since they ignore the time relations among different transitions caused by a test vector in a circuit.  ...  As a result, the TTR metric can achieve higher accuracy in capture-safety checking. • High Scalability: The TTR metric is based on logic simulation.  ...
