Abstract: Leveraging Technology and Standardization of Patient Flow Process in a Perioperative Clinic at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center: Measuring the Value Using Time Driven Activity Based Costing (TDABC) - Applying a technological solution to assist in triaging/decision support for patient care can lead to time savings, development of best practices, and enhance efficiency of care delivery. The value of technological solutions can be measured by applying the principles of TDABC and process care mapping.
