Abstract

Operation rooms are the most critical medical treatment unit in a surgical department, to which high costs of labor and resources are devoted. Managing the resources of operation rooms is just like those in the usual enterprises, both of which need to make good use of all the software and hardware; in addition, they should have the ability of providing competitive-advantaged services. Our research used total 21, 734 records of surgical patients’ length of staying time in an operation room in 2009 in a certain medical center. With the method of Data-Mining-based statistical analysis, we found that the important factors, which affect the forecast of service performance indicator, include the expenses of operations and anesthesia, and the time of operations, etc. In the meantime, we also found that whether or not the surgical patients received general anaesthesia is the most important affecting factor, and the complexity of the operation is the critical factor of the variation in operation time. The resault of this study can be regarded as the points of scheduling tactic, which need to be improved at the operation in the hospital to promote the service efficiency of operation scheduling for surgical patients at the hospital.
