OPTIMIZATION MODELS AND ALGORITHMS FOR HOME HEALTHCARE

In recent years, the field of home health care has become a cause of interest and in-depth studies by researchers in the field of Operational Research and beyond. The typical hard problem in this area is the need to plan the activities of a fleet of healthcare professionals who must visit a number of patients at home. My research goal is to study and formulate MIP models for this problem and its several variants by taking into account both scheduling and vehicle routing issues and facing with different types of constraints including, among others, the workload of operators, the presence of time windows within which perform the service, the continuity of care and so on. Finally, I will develop metaheuristic and matheuristic approches to solve real instances of the studied problems.
