Abstract

In this paper the authors present an application of optimization techniques to the real-life problem of the reorganization of health-service areas. The problem is formulated as a linear programming problem with three objective functions. The values of the three objective functions proved to vary significantly depending on the assumed hierarchy of the objectives. Nevertheless, the multiobjective analysis based on parametric techniques was found to provide a compromise solution which implied significant improvement in the performance of the health-care system.
