The Equity section enables you to specify individual targets for different equity packs.

 

Here is what an Equity Pack Targets table looks like it is found in the Equity section.

 

Make all the appropriate changes and click on the Update button to save your changes.

You can also Hide the actual target values.

 

 

 

Equity Table

 

The Equity table, that is found in the right side column, enables you to view the actual assignment count. Counters update as you Apply changes to the schedule assignments. 

 

 

To select which tasks to be displayed in the table, click on the settings wheel at the far right of the title bar.

 

A window will open, where you can select which counters you want to see.

Counter

This is the default counter displaying task units by physician.

The style of the equity table provides details about the gap between the target and the number of assigned tasks (see legend for details):

Dotted line
Value below the target
Circle
Value above the target
Filled Circle
Value on target
Green
Exact value or very close to the target
Red
Far from the target value
No circle
No set target, informative counter only

 

 

Advanced
Titles now indicate the effect of each equity counter on your automated assignment steps:

Black
No impact, informative counter only

Green
Influent. The equity counter will influence assignments without preventing the automated step from exceeding targets to assign all open tasks.

Blue
Limiting. The equity counter prevents automated steps from exceeding the targets to assign all open tasks.

 

 

 

Spec.
The specific value defined for this counter, for this task, for this physician.

Target
Objectives that each physician must meet during this period.

Current
Total of tasks assigned to the physician for this period.

Delta
Difference between the Target and the Current values.

As published
Value of counters at publishing time. Changes (transfers, exchanges or other) made to the schedule after publication are not considered.

 

By clicking on a counter name at the top of the equity counter, you can view the details for this task. Clicking on the magnifying tool will toggle between the physician view and the task view.

A different Equity Type can be determined for each task or physician.  

 

 

 

Equity values

 

Hovering over the Regarding equity calculations link will display the following information:

 

Equal
Average number of tasks.

Relative
Percentage (%) established for a physician based on the fair value which represents 100% in relative value.

Absolute
Variation above (+) or below (-) the average.

Specific
Amount of specific tasks to be handled by the physician. (~) = fair

 

The "average" depends on the values. For example : 3 physicians split 15 tasks and one of them has a relative equity of 50%, the other two with equal values will have 6 tasks each (and not 15/3 = 5 tasks) and the first physician will get 3.
