dc.description.abstractThe aim of this thesis is to examine how the use of context data in scheduling tools can contribute to the reduction of elective surgery cancellations. A literature review, following the recommendations to systematic reviews, was conducted in order to gather information on what context data could be used to improve elective surgery scheduling, and how the use of these data could affect elective surgery cancellations. The results indicated that the context data most mentioned concerning the improvement of the elective surgery scheduling was historical data, and information on decision-making and staff experiences. The effect most reported in the articles selected for full-text review was increased efficiency and improved utilization of resources. In addition to this, many of these articles also focused on patient satisfaction. This is in alignment with national and global recommendations for future healthcare. However, more research is needed concerning the use of context data and context-awareness in hospital settings.en_US
