In order to improve the accessibility of medical care and the quality of medical services to residents of remote, hard-to-reach areas and small settlements in certain regions of the Russian Federation, forms of medical care are being developed using mobile medical complexes serviced by mobile medical teams. The construction of an optimal work timetable, that is, a sequence of work that ensures their completion no later than the deadlines set, is an important stage in the scheduling of mobile medical brigades’ departures. When solving this problem, it is important to take into account the time for the movement of mobile medical teams and the schemes by which they will be delivered to the points of medical work, which in turn can be determined by meteorological, climatic, geographical conditions in the region, the area of the territory, the density of settlement residents, a model for locating settlements in certain territories and other reasons. The article deals with models and algorithms that correspond to some particular wording of tasks of determining the optimal order of execution of work by a mobile medical brigade, taking into account the time of its movement between points of deployment. An example of the application of the structures considered is given. Highlighted the actual problems in the field of health, for the research of which the models and algorithms described in the article can be used.
Keywords: mobile medical brigade, accessibility of medical care, optimal sequence of service, time of relocation of the brigade.
