Online Surgery Rescheduling - A Data-driven Approach for Real-time Decision Support

Norman Spangenberg , Moritz Wilke , Christoph Augenstein , Bogdan Franczyk


The operating room area is still one of the most expensive sections in the hospital due to its high and cost-intensive resource requirements. Further, several uncertainties like complications, cancellations and emergencies as well as the need to monitor and control the interventions during execution distinguish the operational planning tasks of surgery scheduling from more tactical and strategical planning activities. However there are few solutions that support monitoring and decision-making in operating room management at this level since they focus on creation of initial schedules or the efficient resource allocation. In this paper we describe a solution approach for supporting online surgery scheduling by a real-time decision support system. It allows the rescheduling based on intra-surgical information about the current surgical phases and predictions about remaining intervention times and further allows replanning due to emergent or canceled patients.
