Delivering Multi-Specialty Care via Online Telemedicine Platforms
    - Lingjiong Zhu, Florida State University
Time: 3:35pm-4:25pm Room: LOV 201
Abstract/Desc: The online telemedicine platforms represent a rapidly growing segment of healthcare delivery markets. In this paper, we develop a model of telemedicine platform operations that focuses on managing multi-specialty online-based care in the presence of general/specialty demand interaction. While such demand interaction is common in practice, its impact on platform and physician decisions has not received sufficient attention in the operations literature. Our paper focuses on providing guidance on managing multi-specialty telemedicine platforms. We formulate a queueing model of online service with multiple interacting demand and supply types. In our model, the platform sets the patient fees and physician compensation levels, and physicians, anticipating equilibrium patient demand response, follow by deciding whether to join the platform, and how much of their capacity to allocate to the platform. We derive closed-form expressions for the optimal physician and platform policies in the presence of demand interaction between the general and specialist demand streams. Moreover, we quantify the impact of policies that explicitly account for demand interaction on the platform profitability. Our analysis describes optimal management policies for multi-specialty telemedicine platforms and provides a foundation for the study of the role of telemedicine platforms within broader patient-centric healthcare ecosystems. This is based on the joint work with Sergei Savin and Yuqian Xu.

Non-vanishing of Dirichlet L-functions
    - Rizwanur Khan, The University of Mississippi
Time: 3:35 PM Room: LOV 201
Abstract/Desc: L-functions are fundamental objects in number theory. At the central point s = 1/2, an L-function L(s) is expected to vanish only if there is some deep arithmetic reason for it to do so (such as in the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture), or if its functional equation specialized to s = 1/2 implies that it must. Thus when the central value of an L-function is not a "special value", and when it does not vanish for trivial reasons, it is conjectured to be nonzero. In general it is very difficult to prove such non-vanishing conjectures. For example, nobody knows how to prove that L(1/2, \chi) is nonzero for all primitive Dirichlet characters \chi. In such situations, analytic number theorists would like to prove 100% non-vanishing in the sense of density, but achieving any positive percentage is still valuable and can have important applications. In this talk, I will discuss work on establishing such positive proportions of non-vanishing for Dirichlet L-functions.
