Patient scheduling in hospitals is a highly complex task. Hospitals have a distributed organisational structure; being divided into several autonomous wards and ancillary units. Moreover, the treatment process is dynamic (information about the patients' diseases often varies during treatments, causing changes in the treatment process). Current approaches(More)
Patient scheduling in hospitals is faced with a high amount of complexity [4][5] due to the inherent dynamics of the processes and the distributed organisation structure of hospitals. For treatment, patients visit different units according to their illness. However, the necessary medical treatments are often not completely determined at the beginning of the(More)
Patient-scheduling in hospitals is a complex task which requires new computational methods, e.g. market mechanisms and enhanced support by software agents. These demands are addressed by the MedPAge-Project (Medical Path Agents) which covers the development of a multiagent-system for which an agent oriented specification will be presented. Firstly, based on(More)
The problem of patient scheduling in hospitals is characterized by high uncertainty and dynamics in patient treatments. Additional complexity in the planning and coordination processes is caused due to interdependencies of autonomous and administratively distinct units which are involved in the treatment of a patient. For real-world scheduling scenarios(More)
Ziel der Arbeitsgemeinschaft Krankenhauslogistik ist der Einsatz von intelligenten Softwareagenten in betriebswirtschaftlichen Anwendungsszenarien im Gesundheitswesen. Hierbei liegt der Fokus auf der Lösung bestehender logistischer Probleme im Krankenhaus. Dieser Beitrag zeigt die von der Arbeitsgemeinschaft behandelten Problemstellungen auf und gibt einen(More)
The health sector is a central domain in every economy. It is challenged by progressing costs and funding issues. Hospitals play a major role for the examination and treatment of patients. The sequence how patients are assigned to hospital units determines the quality of treatment, the resource utilization, as well as the patients’ overall treatment time.(More)
