Multi-agent Pareto appointment exchanging in hospital patient scheduling

Ivan Vermeulen, Sander Bohte, Koye Somefun, Han La Poutré
2007 Service Oriented Computing and Applications  
To efficiently solve this problem we develop a multi-agent Pareto-improvement appointment exchanging algorithm: MPAEX.  ...  We present a dynamic and distributed approach to the hospital patient scheduling problem, in which patients can have multiple appointments that have to be scheduled to different resources.  ...  Multi-agent pareto appointment exchanging To schedule the patient activities efficiently, we use a distributed approach where software agents interact with each other to exchange appointments where none  ...

We present a dynamic and distributed approach to the hospital patient scheduling problem: the multi-agent Pareto-improvement appointment exchanging algorithm, MPAEX.  ...  We present models of the hospital patient scheduling problem in terms of the "health care cycle" where a doctor repeatedly orders sets of activities (partial plans) to diagnose and/or treat a patient.  ...  Thus, we present a Multi-agent Pareto Appointment EXchanging algorithm: MPAEX. In the multi-agent system that we develop, patients are assigned an initial schedule for their required treatments.  ...

Multi-Agent Based Information Systems For Patient Coordination in Hospitals

Torsten O. Paulussen, Armin Heinzl, Christian Becker
2013 International Conference on Information Systems  
Thus, efficient scheduling of patients in hospitals is crucial.  ...  Agents are coordinated by a distributed mechanism where software agents improve their situation through negotiations which moves towards an overall Pareto optimum.  ...  Thus, patient scheduling in hospitals is concerned with the optimal assignment of patients to hospital resources.  ...

Negotiation-Based Patient Scheduling in Hospitals [chapter]

Lars Braubach, Alexander Pokahr, Winfried Lamersdorf
2013 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
In this respect, patient scheduling is an interesting parameter that determines on the one hand the length of the patients stay in the hospital and the eciency of the hospital resource allocation on the  ...  Thus, in this paper a decentralized agent based approach is presented that represents patients as well as hospital resources as agents with individual goals that negotiate to nd appropriate solutions.  ...  Introduction In hospitals, patient scheduling deals with the assignment of patients to the scarce and expensive hospital resources.  ...

A novel multi-agent scheduling mechanism for adaptation of production plans in case of supply chain disruptions

Jing Tan, Lars Braubach, Kai Jander, Rongjun Xu, Kai Chen
2020 AI Communications
