Abstract

Regional managers must often deal with the necessity to correctly distributed healthcare services in their territory. The traditional approach taking into account only political considerations is risky. In order to improve the robustness of the solution it is better to add quantitative and objective information (such as patient numbers, travelling times and travelling distances) to the political criteria that control the decision-making process. In this work, we deal with the problem of choosing the facilities in which new expensive complex devices can be placed in order to improve the health care services offered by a regional health system.
