About the research
Every day in every city and town, healthcare professionals take to the road to help their clients. You no doubt already encountered them as they make their round. But that busy round is often a complex puzzle, where they have to take into account distances, personal preferences but also e.g. medication times. Who do they best visit first? And which route do they best follow? Using artificial intelligence, Ruben Vanbosseghem (Artevelde University of Applied Sciences) and his colleagues are using AI to develop a smart home care planner.
