Simulation model for patient external transportation in Montreal
Patient external transportation is a major portion of the budget of logistics in health care facilities in Quebec. The institutions are currently uniformizing their decision process regarding the organization of patient external transportation. Different strategies for booking are tested using a simulation model. We also take advantage of the model to test routing scenarios, introduce new vehicles, and finally test levels of centralization.

To verify this hypothesis, we propose a clustering model to solve the daily patient’s transportation problem.
