Results of base model comparing with the historical data.

Evaluation indicatorOutputs
Historical dataBase model95% confidence interval of mean value

Daily examination quantity245246.5(234.2, 258.8)
The average waiting time of GPs66.864.0(60.8, 67.2)
The average waiting time of EPs2.52.4(2.3, 2.5)
The satisfaction rate of GPs35.2%(38.3%, 42.3%)

Note. In practice, no one measured the satisfaction rate of GPs, so we cannot compare the result obtained from the base model with the historical data.
