Modularization Medical Scheduling System for Multi-clinical Departments at Medical Center

Shu-Fang Cheng and Chia-Yeuan Han*

Abstract—A hospital is a place where sick patients are treated, treatments can be one-time, short-term, and long-term, such as chemotherapy and rehabilitation. The more patients who need to be treated; the more valuable medical resources become. With the increase of human population and the used of medical resources, how to effectively arrange medical resources has become the major problem faced by medical centers. However, different medical departments have different kinds of medical resources, and customizing the scheduling system for each department is not an effective approach. To solve this problem, we surveyed different medical departments in a (Medical Center in Southern Taiwan, summarize the needed, implemented a modularization Medical Scheduling System (MSS), for a Medical Center in Southern Taiwan, and resolve the complex appointment scheduling problem in a multi-clinic. The MSS improves work assignment effective and sensible utilization in medical device. Furthermore, it can be used for epidemic prevention and the control of Covid-19 pandemic. Based on the confirmed cases, we can identify potential contacts via MSS and contain the coronavirus.
