Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Alexandra Hospital conducted a business process reengineering exercise for all its main processes in order to further improve on their efficiencies with the ultimate aim to provide a higher level of services to patients. The goal of the DEM is to manage an anticipated increase in the volume of patients without much increase in resources. As a start, the Department of Emergency (DEM) medicine studied its AS-IS process and has designed and implemented the new TO-BE process. As part of this continuous improvement effort, staff from Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) has been assigned the task of applying engineering and analytical techniques to simulate the new process. The simulations were conducted to show on process management and resource planning.
