Benefits and Challenges Scheduling Appointment within Healthcare The Significance of the Topic: The above topic is ideal for the final research because the research seeks to determine the benefits that are associated with scheduling appointments in healthcare, primarily through the internet. Besides, the study aims at highlighting the challenges that are associated with scheduling appointments in healthcare. Thesis Statement: While appointment scheduling has benefits such as allowing patients to book for specialty clinics, several factors impact the performance of scheduling appointments systems, such as the experience level of the people responsible for scheduling, provider and patient preferences, the available information technology, and service and arrival time variability. Research Questions: What are the benefits of scheduling appointments within healthcare? What are the challenges of scheduling appointments within healthcare? Space allocated for each section: The final paper will be organized into several sections as follows: Section 1: 1 to 2 pages highlights the background of scheduling appointments in healthcare and an overview of the benefits and challenges experienced with scheduling appointments. Besides, this section will highlight the thesis statement and research questions. Section 2: 3 to 6 pages describe decisions made in hospitals, specialty clinics, and primary care clinics and appointment scheduling environments. Section 3: 3 to 4 pages highlight the benefits of scheduling appointments in healthcare. Section 4: 3 to 6 pages classify the underlying difficulties and complexities of making appointments according to the following factors: the mapped arrival process, performance and incentives measures, provider and patient preferences, and the service process. Section 5: 3 to 6 pages examine the IE/OR literature and the Health Services Research on appointment systems in healthcare. Section 6: 1 to 3 pages concluding on the research. Section 7: References Background Material Necessary for the Research: The research will gather information from different scholarly articles, which are not less than ten years old. The sources of these materials will be Google scholar, the internet, and other appropriate sources. References Anderson, K., Zheng, B., Yoon, S. W., & Khasawneh, M. T. (2015).
