Prof. Dr. Teresa Melo (Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft des Saarlandes (HTW))


The field of health care provides a broad range of applications suitable for analysis using Operations Research (OR) techniques. Recent technological innovations in medicine and health care as well as advances in information and communication technologies further broadened the application scope of OR models and methods in health care. In addition to cost savings, health care OR improves efficiency and effectiveness in health care service delivery.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, management and optimization of health care operations, resource allocation, capacity planning, workforce staffing, treatment design, patient flow modeling, quality and performance measurement, disease prevention modeling.
