  7. Abstract:
  8. Statistical process control charts have been applied to the health care practices for quite same time. This work aims at investigating the merits to of applying process control chart to the survival time of the patients suffering from gastric cancer-who go though the surgical treatment. Based on accelerated failure time regression models we adopt risk adjusted control chart to monitor the surgical outcome. The monitoring process will we performed continuously based on a likelihood ratio test. The result indicate that this risk adjusted model can provide better estimation for the risk adjustment model parameters. As expected, the proposed risk-adjusted control charts can achieve a better detection performance by including the surgeon covariate
