Abstract

This chapter provides a classification of literature reviews on patient planning and scheduling decisions in healthcare. To this end, we provide a mathematical interpretation of hierarchical planning levels and then add the planning complexity dimension to an existing planning and scheduling framework, resulting in a 3D framework for patient planning and scheduling decisions in healthcare. Subsequently, we provide an overview on recent surveys and reviews on this topic and position these studies in the 3D framework.
