Vanberkel, Peter T. and Boucherie, Richard J. and Hans, Erwin W. and Hurink, Johann L. and Litvak, Nelly (2009) A Survey of Health Care Models that Encompass Multiple Departments. [Report]

open access
Abstract:In this survey we review quantitative health care models to illustrate the extent to which they encompass multiple hospital departments. The paper provides general overviews of the relationships that exists between major hospital departments and describes how these relationships are accounted for by researchers. We find the atomistic view of hospitals often taken by researchers is partially due to the ambiguity of patient care trajectories. To this end clinical pathways literature is reviewed to illustrate its potential for clarifying patient flows and for providing a holistic hospital perspective.
