An Optimization Model for Integrated Capacity Management and Bed Allocation Planning of Hospitals
MetadataShow full item record
Hospitals are facing with increasing demands of unlimited needs of people health. On the other hand, due to the rising cost of healthcare services, hospitals need to put more effort in order to overcome these two problems. This paper deals with proposing an integrated strategy for solving these problems. We address an integer optimization model which integrate capacity staff management problem and bed allocation planning problem. We solve the model using a direct approach, based on the notion of superbasic variables.
