AUTOMATICALLY OPTIMIZING PATIENT FLOW
Founder and CTO, Allocade, Inc.
This white paper describes the automatic scheduling problem in general, some common approaches to the problem, as well as Allocade’s patented Repair-Based technology, an approach which is uniquely well-suited to the challenge of optimizing patient flow through hospitals.
Allocade's core technology originated with the founder’s work in generating observation schedules for NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. Tackling this complex issue required some major breakthroughs in scheduling technology, and these breakthroughs are now being applied to healthcare for the first time.
