Accessibility and Quality of Health Services: Proceedings of the 28th Meeting of the European Working Group on Operational Research Applied to Health Services (Orahs), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), July 28th - August 2nd 2002 by Ferreira de Oliveira

Twenty papers selected from the 2002 annual meeting of the Group cover quality health care, emergency services, evaluating health care, evaluating performance, decision support systems, admission systems, information systems, and performance measurements. Among specific topics are planning the emergency ambulance service in Rome by a mixed integer linear programming model, modeling the dynamics of the intensive care unit of a public hospital as a renewal process, and clinical engineering as a source of input values to The Management Equation Methodology.
