A Model for Reasoning about Interaction with Users in Dynamic, Time Critical Environments for the Application of Hospital Decision Making

  • Conference paper

Abstract

In this paper, we present a model for reasoning about interaction with users in dynamic, time critical environments in a way that is sensitive to the cost of bother. We project the model into the scenario of decision making in hospital emergency room settings, providing a framework for modeling the doctors in that environment, to determine whom to ask to attend to a current patient. A simulation of our model demonstrates that it offers valuable improvements due to its reasoning about bother.
