Abstract

Today, UK healthcare strategy managers face a challenge in developing and implementing an efficient care process in line with preserving a steady care evidence-based practice. This would be possible through the monitoring of time schedule and reduction of unnecessary variability with respect to clinical performances, consequently, to achieve the required quality of service at a contained cost. For this purpose the development of a model requires a firm rational basis to provide clear direction. Therefore, it is necessary to provide a systematic assessment for planning and coordinating healthcare services through which patients needs have to be achieved. This study aims to cover the healthcare process for particular conditions, e.g., COPD, Diabetes, Chronicle Heart Disease etc, modelling together the interaction of all components of Hounslow healthcare system, hence, to track patient flow across the system using spatio-temporal models and to evaluate the variations in length of stay and referral activities from the standardised pathways. Furthermore, we intend to derive indexes to inform the reshaping and the delivery of healthcare system.
