Su, Ying and Al-Hakim, Latif (2010) Using computer simulation in operating room management: impacts of information quality on process performance. In: WMSVM 2010: 2nd International Conference on Modeling, Simulation and Visualization Methods, 15-16 May 2010, Sanya, China.
High quality information has a significant impact on improving operation performance and patient satisfaction, as well as resolving patient disputes. Based on the analysis of the perioperative process, information quality is considered as an important contributory factor in improving patient throughput. In this paper, we propose a conceptual framework to use computer simulations in modeling information flow of hospital process for operating room management (ORM). Additionally, we conduct simulation studies in different levels of the information quality for ORM. The results of our studies provide evidence that information quality can drive process performance in several phases of the ORM.
