VC International Scholarship in Development of a platform for healthcare operations management underpinning strategic, tactical and operational decisions


Project Description

Please see eligibility criteria before applying

A graphical user interface will be developed in close collaboration with NHS practitioners (physicians, nurses and managers) to support decision making. A usability and acceptability study will be undertaken to feed back into the platform and to maximise impact.

The candidate is expected to work closely together with the local health boards in order to develop and implement software requirements specifications. The output of the work will have a direct and immediate impact on the potential management of the local health boards which are linked with us.

The Aneurin Bevan University Health Board has launched a course program in which scheduling, staffing and queuing models are taught within the NHS. The platform developed in this dissertation will be used as a tool to demonstrate course participants the effectiveness of mathematical modelling in healthcare.

In undertaking this project you will develop:

*new mathematical models for tackling healthcare operations management problems on the strategic, tactical and operational decision level
*algorithms to obtain high quality solutions
*simulation models to address uncertainty in healthcare.
