Thesis title: Global method for predicting the length of stay in hospital using incremental and evolutionary data

Thesis theme:

Estimating the length of hospital stay has to be done for every admission to properly plan care activities. An inaccurate estimation can make the organization inefficient, cause work overload for healthcare professionals and a longer waiting time for patients. Hospitals will have to optimize resources use to keep up with the increasing need for healthcare and the budgets restrictions. In this context, the thesis theme is to develop a new length of stay prediction method that will help the hospital bed manager to accurately estimate the length of stays at the time of admission and during the whole hospital stay.
