According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries, total expenditures on health services is constantly growing. Health structures are increasingly facing changing health demands and economical and political pressure. How to make changes in order to improve the whole healthcare system performance becomes the main issue of researchers from organizational and decisional points of view. This special session deals with healthcare systems design and management. Researchers are invited to present their research in the areas of healthcare systems management and optimization. The goal is to discuss new advances in the health care domain, mainly promising alternatives of the traditional Health Care System and efficient Health Care Decisional Support Systems. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Operations Research and Artificial Intelligence for coordinating, planning and scheduling,
• Uncertainty and risk management,
• Resources design and management,
• Healthcare technologies and health informatics,
• Supply chain and care network
• Transportation problems: Home (Health-) care routing and scheduling, patients transportation, ...
• Health care services management: Patient flow management, Ambulatory surgery, Scheduling staff and operating rooms,...
• Lean Healthcare management
