Decision support for efficient ambulance logistics
2005 (English)Report (Other academic)
Ambulance logistics comprises everything that has to do with managing an efficient ambulance health care, which includes both emergency medical services and patient transportations. In this work, ambulance logistics is defined and discussed using the Swedish public service enterprise SOS Alarm as a basis. A number of ways of improving the ambulance logistic service provided by SOS Alarm is identified. Work that has been performed in two of the nine identified areas is described in more detail. In both of these two areas, the main improvement lies in the development of decision support tools for the ambulance dispatchers. The tools that are developed are a preparedness calculator, an ambulance dispatch tool a relocation tool and a simulation tool.
