The Influence of Human Factors on Access and Scheduling of Primary Care Services

Abstract : This paper explores human and organisational factors (HOFs) related to access and scheduling (A&S) of Healthcare services. Here human factors relate to the ‘processed’ (patients) as well as the ‘processors’ (people working in the operation). A ‘whole system perspective’ is taken to investigate how these influence outcomes. The analysis differentiates acceptable demand on the service from failure demand [1], where failure demand represents unnecessary demand placed on acute care (such as Accident and Emergency in hospitals) as well as primary care services. For eight General Practices in the UK, approaches to practice organisation, including A&S, are analysed to establish HOFs that influence service delivery and performance. Findings highlight HOFs affecting outcomes and ways in which A&S arrangements can be modified to improve them. These should inform the choice and management of effective A&S in a range of Health service scenarios, as well as for General Practices in the UK.
