In home health care (HHC) operations, nurses are scheduled and routed to perform various services at clients’ homes. As this often requires a combination of vehicle routing and scheduling approaches, resulting optimization problems are complex and, hence, of high interest to stakeholders such as researchers, practitioners and policy-makers. With demand for HHC expected to increase substantially, future work is essential to decrease costs and to guarantee service quality. We provide a comprehensive overview of current work in the field of HHC routing and scheduling with a focus on considered problem settings.
