ABSTRACT

As the quality of the medical treatment service provided by large hospitals grow, the number ofpatients utilizing the facilities is increasing dramatically. Various studies such as ordercommunication system and treatment guidance system are under their process in order to shortenthe waiting time for patients. However, the existing methods assign the treatments in successiveorder without recognizing the situation of each treatment, therefore increasing a patient's standby time at a hospital. This paper proposes a context-aware treatment guidance system, whichrecognizes the previously undermined estimated waiting time of each treatment for a patient andrecommends a treatment with shorter estimated sojourn time first. This context-aware treatmentguidance system provides detailed information of treatment services based on the recommendedorder of treatments to a patient's smartphone. By utilizing the context-aware treatment guidancesystem introduced in this paper, patients can reduce their standby time at hospitals to theminimum while hospitals can efficiently service more patients at the same amount of time. Theproposed context-aware treatment guidance system proves to be outstanding in treatment orderrecommendation through comparisons to previously used methods.
