UZ Leuven

Challenge

The department of Anaesthesiology of UZ Leuven used to put a lot of effort in planning the oncall shifts of their medical residents. These shift plans should incorporate the doctor's preferences and other business constraints. Solvice was asked to deliver a solution that could reduce the time spent planning and that correctly incorporated the business constraints.

Approach

After a detailed analysis of the business requirements, Solvice proposed to help implement their OnCall solution. OnCall is a Sotware-as-a-service product that solves oncall scheduling problems by fairly distributing shifts among personnel according to shift preferences, skills, workload constraints and other business rules.

Solution

After implementation of OnCall, the anaesthesiology department of UZ leuven now spends 90% less time planning the oncall schedules. Moreover, the shifts are attributed more fairly, given the preferences and constraints of all relevant shareholders.
