TITLE: Data-driven appointment scheduling under uncertainty: The case of an infusion unit in an oncology center



We develop a novel, data-driven approach to deal with appointment sequencing and scheduling in a multi-server system, where both customer punctuality and service times are stochastic. Our model is calibrated using a data set of unprecedented resolution, gathered at a large-scale outpatient oncology practice. This data set combines real-time locations, electronic health records and appointments logs. Our approach yields tractable and scalable solutions that accommodate hundreds of jobs and servers. We demonstrate the performance of our algorithm by comparing it with existing state-of-the-art sequencing and scheduling algorithms.
