  • Speculate how you would apply the theory of constraints to this medical practice. Explain your position and support your answer.

PART 2 PLEASE RESPOND AND COMENT TO THIS DISCUSSION NO LESS THE 175 WORDS BASE ON 1 CREDIBLE RESORCE

From the first case study, evaluate the medical practice and suggest at least two options (not discussed in the case) to maximize patient throughput and revenues without compromising the quality of medical care. Support your suggestion.

I believe the medical practice in the case study is currently on overload. The practice itself is doing good things, but they the doctors in the study are putting themselves in position to be in trouble. The long hours as well as the number of patients are taking a toll on both doctors. Per the exhibit in our book, the doctors cannot do as much as they should due to the fact that the surgeries take as much time as they do, and the surgeon changeover time. One way to maximize patient throughput and revenue would be to open a separate location. Business expansion is a good problem to have. If this was to take place, one surgeon could operate one practice and the other could run the other. This would also allow the surgeons to bring on additional surgeons who in turn would help with the workload. This way patients are getting the same quality of medical care, or maybe even better. The second way to maximize patient throughput would be to take the current facility into two separate shifts. One day shift and one night shift. This way they facility is open longer and both doctors are not operating in the same hours.

  • Speculate how you would apply the theory of constraints to this medical practice. Explain your position and support your answer

    I would apply the theory of constraints to this medical practice by evaluating the number of surgeries that can be done each week. That is the constraint. Since that has been identified, we would then have to work to improve upon that, which goes back to the top of this discussion. The only ways this can be increased would be to increase the number of surgeons, increase the hours of the practice, or open another facility.
