Abstract:Instituut Verbeeten provides radiotherapy for cancer patients. Before starting the radiotherapy, appointments of the pre-treatment stage must be scheduled. Instituut Verbeeten wants to optimize the blueprint schedule of pre-treatment appointments for their patient types with different stages and durations. We focus on combining appointments to decrease access time and start a patients' treatment as soon as possible. We solve the model optimally with an ILP and give feasible solutions with a greedy constructive heuristic. During the experiments, we found optimal solutions and the access time is decreased. 100% of the regular and subacute patients is treated within the nationwide norm. This research sets a basis for multi appointment/disciplinary planning in hospitals.
