Strategic and Tactical Hospital Bed Management in Belgium and in France

Abstract : Nowadays, lots of healthcare establishments decide to integrate a hospital bed management department, while taking into account the financial impact on the budget, the disruptions and factors influencing the bed planning as e.g. the type of care units management and the existing networks between hospitals and satellite structures. Lots of constraints will also have an impact while optimizing the available resources: accepting the emergency case and therefore delaying the planned patient, adding additional beds within a care unit and studying at the same time the collateral costs, opening or closing beds related to a specialty, etc.
