Planning healthcare is a complicated business, and no planning model is going to convince today’s operational managers just by getting the sums right. So models have to go much further, and paint a rich enough picture of every service so that managers can instinctively say “yes, that feels like life where I am”.

Gooroo Planner doesn’t only work out the activity and capacity you need – it also shows how to deliver it in compelling week-by-week charts, and even simulates the plan dynamically so you can watch it unfolding, patient by patient, over time.


A whole host of features...

With every one of the benefits Gooroo offers there's also a whole host of features worth mentioning

  • Visualise your plans in week by week profiles of activity, beds, theatres, clinics and waiting times.

  • Click-to-edit charting allows you to test different activity profiles interactively.

  • Shows total capacity and referral-to-treatment waiting times too.

  • Simulates elective plans patient-by-patient to show how waiting times evolve.

  • Clearly shows in compelling detail if patients are not being scheduled safely and fairly.

  • Shows how patient scheduling is influenced by each service's levels of clinical priorities, removals, cancellations and capacity.
