The stochastic healthcare facility configuration problem

Coauthors: David Carmona, Xue L. Han, Brittany C. Tarin


The stochastic healthcare facility configuration problem, which is
essentially a supply chain design problem, is to prescribe the
location and size of each facility, allowing openings, expansions,
contractions, and closures; the healthcare services each is to offer;
and the capacity to be allocated to each service - all given that patient needs are uncertain. This topic is timely as countries seek to enhance access to healthcare services, including the U.S., which is working towards the goal of expanding access in underserved (e.g., rural) areas and through recent legislation. This presentation describes relevant practical features of the healthcare facility configuration problem and presents a framework for prescriptive models. Appropriate solution methods are proposed. The goal is a scalable methodology to plan healthcare-facility configuration, adjusting, for example, to demand and demographic changes, emigration, immigration, mergers, and acquisitions.
