研究目標 Based on the above, we should develop a novel assessment model to identify the utility rate of resources in the medical sector for enhancing hospital operations. More specifically, the proposed model can incorporate a novel set of management strategies that emphasize allotting resources within the medical sector to strengthen a hospital’s competitiveness in order to comply with the Global Budget System.

達成目標的方法 To do so, the DEA model can be used to determine the operational efficiency of each hospital and identify an improved direction for allocating resources. AHP can the be revised based on the weight of the DEA model. Next, questionnaires can be sent to administrators regarding the significance of assessing hospital performance. Additionally, pertinent literature can be reviewed to confirm the reliability of variables in the database. Finally, the performances of different hospital types can be compared using the Kruskal-wallis test.

希望的結果 As anticipated, analysis results can indicate the feasibility of adopting the proposed assessment model to design and implement precautionary measures towards the utility rate of resources in related field. In addition to providing the medical sector with more accurate guidelines on allocating and planning operations, the proposed model can greatly facilitate hospitals in allocating resources effectively, ultimately increasing their operating capital. Moreover, the proposed model can contribute to efforts to effectively utilize resources in the highly competitive medical market sector, as well as provide a valuable reference for policymakers in enhancing the effective allocation of resources.

領域的貢獻 Importantly, the proposed resources allocation strategy can reduce the operational costs of hospitals and increase the resources utility rate. Increasing the resource allocation effectively would not only increase subsidized revenues from the National Health Insurance scheme, but also distinguish between the performance efficiency of the hospitals considered and the difference among hospitals with respect to effectiveness change. Doing so would ultimately increase the competiveness of the intensely competitive medical sector.

How to Use Batching to Become More Productive at Work
Batching is a form of time management to maximize your concentration and decrease distractions while working.
The Pomodoro Technique is one method for batching tasks. Here’s how it works:
* Plan and prioritize the tasks that need to be completed, by writing them down.
* Set a timer for 25 minutes and devote that time to a task, or to a group of similar tasks.
* After completing each task, you put an “X” next to it and mark the number of times that you were distracted.
* Take a 5 minute break for each 25 minutes of work.
* Begin another 25 minute block of work time.
* After completing 4 blocks of work time, take a longer 20 minute break.
* You can download the Pomodoro Pro app for your iPhone/ iPad at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pomodoropro/id340156917?mt=8 (michaelhyatt)

The Digital Scholar: How Technology Is Transforming Scholarly Practice
This book excerpt discusses how social media is changing the way in which researchers publish their findings and collaborate with others.
When evaluating the quality of academic blogs for research purposes, one should ask the following questions:

* Are they central or peripheral to practice?
* Are they applicable to all domains?
* Are they more applicable for some scholarly functions than others, for example, teaching?
* How do we recognize quality?
* Do they complement or replace existing channels?
* Should we reward them through official routes such as tenure?
* Should bloggers use institutional systems or separate out their blogging and formal identities?
* What is their impact on academic communities? (bloomsburyacademic)

研讀以下研究提案以辦別包含的科技論點:

研究建構 The extremely competitive medical market sector in Taiwan and budget deficits incurred from the island’s National Health Insurance scheme have led to the implementation of a Global Budget System. Whereas hospitals heavily prioritize allotting resources efficiently, the resources utility rate has received increasing attention. Thus, hospitals must concentrate their operational efforts on retaining current patients and increasing the utility rate of those resources that hospitals already possess.

研究問題 Of the relatively few studies examining the medical sector in this area, conventional approaches calculate the number of outpatients, inpatients and visits to emergency service without considering the pyment policy in the Global Budget System.

研究問題的量化 The inability to effectively address the utility rate of resources would make the statistical approaches used to determine the samples in resource policies inaccurate.

研究問題的中心 Incapable of determining the utility rate of resources, hospitals will expend considerable costs to maintain nullity of resources and reduce the subsidized revenues from the National Health Insurance scheme, ultimately lowering their competitiveness.

研究目標 Based on the above, we should develop an effective quality control index based on customer relations management to analyze how individuals select a hospital to receive medical treatment, thus providing a valuable reference for policymakers in the medical sector.

達成目標的方法 To do so, a questionnaire can be designed to understand the varying levels of medical treatment quality by incorporating the basic requirements of patients, including intangible ones such as respect. Use of PZB in the twenty two-item questionnaires can enhance its effectiveness, including factors such as tangibles, reliability, responsiveness, assurance, and empathy. The following criterion can then be adopted to analyze the questionnaire results: physicians are qualified and reliable; medical staff has received sufficient training; physicians are willing to offer valuable clinical information; physicians express concern for their patients; medical staff display a professional attitude; and the hospital honors patient confidentiality. Next, a distinction between satisfactory and unsatisfactory medical treatment can be made by using the AHP method. Additionally, the quality of medical services in individual hospitals can be determined using the quality control index.

希望的結果 As anticipated, by incorporating AHP, the proposed quality control index can evaluate individual attitudes towards medical service quality, thus enhancing management quality and competitiveness of hospitals, as evidenced by increased revenues.

領域的貢獻 While attempting to enhance medical quality island wide, the proposed index can more accurately assess the quality of medical service in hospitals than conventional management methods can.

研究建構 Changes in Taiwan’s National Health Insurance policy have led to stringent competition among an increasing number of hospitals to receive case payment for treating patients given a fixed allocated budget, necessitating that hospitals change their management approaches to remain competitive.

研究問題 Given the increasingly competitive medical treatment services offered nationwide, conventional management methods have lost their competitiveness in handling case-payment schemes owing to the inability to fully understand market needs, which is essential to establishing an effective strategy to increase revenues.

研究問題的量化 For instance, each of the five hospitals in Hsinchu, Taiwan has lost $1,200,000 annually in revenues owing to the inefficient management of case-payment schemes.

研究問題的中心 The inability to handle case-payment schemes will lead to a further loss in hospital revenues, eventually leading to a reduction in personnel and community services.

達成目標的方法 To do so, a questionnaire can be designed to query experts in the real estate sector on the current market demand for commercial centers in Taiwan. An appropriate weight criterion can then be derived based on the results of the interviews with those experts. Next, based on that criterion, an unbiased consistency index and decision-making process can be developed. Additionally, the potential location of a commercial center can be assessed based on the objective procedure.

希望的結果 As anticipated, the proposed AHP-based method can offer a more efficient and precise site selection criterion than the biased conventional approach can, subsequently reducing the potential risks associated with selecting the site for a commercial center.

領域的貢獻 Importantly, the proposed AHP method can provide not only real estate planners with a reliable means of estimating risk factors and selecting the optimal location of commercial centers, but also governmental urban planners with an effective means of reducing unnecessary risks when selecting the sites of other commercial trades.

For instance, in Taipei, numerous commercial centers containing more than ten business units have been established since 1991. The market demand for commercial centers is expected to increase.

研究問題 However, real estate planners lack an objective means of determining the site of a commercial center, concerned primarily with the location, computer hardware access and their own subjective judgment based on previous experiences, possibly leading to an inappropriate selection for the location of a commercial center.

研究問題的量化 For instance, real estate planners tat rely solely on subjective assessments or previous experiences to select the location of a commercial may make an inappropriate decision that does not draw from the beneficial results of estimating norms and interviews with experts in the field.

研究問題的中心 The inability of real estate planners to draw upon objective sources of information when selecting the site of a commercial center may lead to a low occupancy rate and decreased commercial value of the commercial center.

研究目標 Based on the above, we should develop an optimal operating model, capable of selecting an effective monitor to adequately implement an internal marketing model in hospital marketing practices, subsequently providing admissions directors or hospital administrators with the most effective strategic policy to promote marketing efforts.

達成目標的方法 To do so, statistical variables of various populations among patients and hospital staff that provide healthcare services such as training, orientation and promotion can be identified using multivariate statistical analysis, i.e. one way ANOVA test and the Karl Pearson test (NOTE: Add 2-3 sentences to describe the methodology more completely).

希望的結果 As anticipated, the proposed optimal operating model can provide staff with a more productive working environment by adopting statistical analysis to demonstrate the effectiveness of various services, including training, orientation and promotion, enabling hospitals to understand which areas require improvement to achieve quality healthcare services. Enhanced quality of healthcare services is an indirect means of promotion, by which satisfied patients and their relatives relay their positive experiences to others, ultimately improving the image of the institution. Moreover, the proposed operating model confirms the effectiveness of internal marketing, in which organizations train and motivate their employees to provide quality healthcare services. Such an approach must precede conventional marketing practices if a hospital is to maintain its competitiveness.

領域的貢獻 Importantly, the proposed optimal operating model can provide expectations by and of the staff, motivating them to continuously improve in their profession. Additionally, the proposed method contains an optimization procedure with simplified calculations in ordered categorical data for engineers. While an internal marketing program within a hospital must focus on training and career advancement for hospital staff, the proposed model can encourage training and continuous on-the-job learning through daily interaction with peers and supervisors. Furthermore, the optimization procedure with simplified calculations in ordered categorical data can provide a valuable reference for engineers as well.
