Physician Practice and Disease Specific Applications

Part of the International Series in Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 120)

Physician practice applications to date were limited due to the complicated nature of accounting the performance in physicians and available data. Physician practice applications are also often referred to as clinical applications or primary care physician (PCP) models in the literature. Although physician practice on specific disease is often the main focus of the applications in this area (Chilingerian, 1995; Ozcan, 1998; Ozcan et al., 2000), more generic models of physician production were also modeled (Chilingerian and Sherman, 1997b).
