Description/Abstract

OR methods and tools are being increasingly applied within the health services domain to support objective decision-making for the effective and efficient provision of resources. Healthcare modelling, however, is beset with many challenges and this paper examines a number of issues that define the primary challenges faced by the modeller in this field. It is fair to say that their resolution determines the likely success or failure of healthcare modelling in general. Working with a number of participating health service organizations, a proposed framework towards successful implementation has evolved and is presented in this paper
