The aging of the population leads to an increase in the number of people losing their autonomy and in situations of fragility.
Due to the lack of space in medico-social institutions, home care structures (SAAD, SSIAD, SPASAD, and HAD) are an alternative offering a better environment for beneficiaries.
We are working on a project whose objective is to meet the expectations of generating and optimizing the schedules of home services. To solve the problem of planning and optimization of the rounds of home care workers, the researchers have developed an algorithm based on the behavior of a colony of ants.
Benefits for all:
- For decision-makers: easier management of schedules
- For homecare workers: improved working conditions
- For the beneficiaries: taking into account their preferences in terms of activities, stakeholders, and availabilities
