Appropriate service delivery management is a key factor for the competitiveness of any home care (HC) provider. HC services’ characteristics require managerial attention, and patients are relatively few, but spread out over quite a large area, which makes inter-transport times long, while the type of care to be provided depends on a variety of patients’ needs. The process of dealing with this information includes the analysis and thorough knowledge of a series of variables, such as the types of transport that may be used; e.g., maximum capacity (in physical dimensions) to be transported, analysis of public routes, location of patients, lists of patients to be visited on each route, etc.
