Project description

The high uncertainty and complexity to harmonize the different stages of a care pathway entangles the coordination between demand and resources in breast cancer screening resulting in unpredictable throughput times and patient dissatisfaction. In order to devise an accurate planning of patients and allocation of capacity, we propose an integrated methodology to improve the operational decision-making and support policy development.
