Our healthcare system faces major challenges in outpatient medical care. Despite the decline in population and rising costs, medical care must still be guaranteed in rural areas. The aim of HealthFaCT (Facility Location, Covering and Transport) is to find the optimal distribution of the scarce health care resources in rural areas.
The collaborative project HealthFaCT is developing an innovative software-based optimization and decision-making system to improve outpatient medical care. The software quickly identifies and evaluates the best possible option for strategic, tactical, and operational decisions. In addition, the user can interactively visualize, explore, analyze, and verify the results. We are developing a web-based simulation platform that integrates the optimization methods designed by our project partners.
