A Decision-Making Tool for Home Health Care Nurses’ Planning

Abstract : This article deals with problems encountered be routing nurses through home health care services. It is difficult to assign patients to different care workers by taking into account their availability and their skills. If patients need several cares during a week, they may be treated by the same employee. We show that this problem is equivalent to a routing problem with some specific constraints. We propose an integer linear program for deciding (1) which human resource should be used and (2) when to execute the service during the planning horizon in order to satisfy the care plan for each patient served by the home health care providers
