Long-term integrated surgery room optimization and recovery ward planning, with a case study in the Brazilian National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics (INTO)

This paper proposes an integrated approach for the long-term planning and surgery allocation problem with downstream constraints. It is motivated by a case study in the Brazilian National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics, which provides elective high complexity surgeries for patients from the Brazilian public health system. We introduce an optimization problem that designs a periodic surgery allocation schedule as well as a recovery ward utilization plan, with a view at balancing patient arrivals and releases in the long term, in such a way that all surgeries are performed in a timely manner.

Abstract

This paper proposes an integrated approach for the long-term planning and surgery allocation problem with downstream constraints. It is motivated by a case study in the Brazilian National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics, which provides elective high complexity surgeries for patients from the Brazilian public health system. We introduce an optimization problem that designs a periodic surgery allocation schedule as well as a recovery ward utilization plan, with a view at balancing patient arrivals and releases in the long term, in such a way that all surgeries are performed in a timely manner.
