Matematisk fellesseminar: "Monitorering av forløpstider"


UiS får fredag 31/10 besøk av Dr. Axel Gandy fra Imperial College London som vil snakke om "Monitoring Event Histories" eller "Monitorering av forløpstider".

Tid: 13.15-14.00
Sted: Rom E-541, Kjølv Egelands hus.

Foredraget blir holdt på engelsk og her følger et abstract på engelsk:

Monitoring performance of hospitals is becoming more and more common in the medical field. Most methods are based on logistic models or normal distribution assumptions. In this talk we investigate monitoring schemes using event history analysis. In particular, we discuss a monitoring scheme based on cumulative sum (CUSUM) charts designed to detect a proportional change in the hazard. As an example, we consider monitoring the length of stay in acute hospitals for stroke,
adjusting for case mix factors and transfer rates to different hospitals. The charts have wide applicability in other fields besides medicine, e.g. in reliability and in finance.

Velkommen!
