Nevrim, Selin
After the year 2014, a new and alternative model of healthcare services had been introduced to reorganize the contribution of the private sector on healthcare investments in Turkey. The essence of this new model was creating healthcare centers established in various provinces under the title of the "city hospital". City Hospitals have radical differences when compared with traditional health care buildings. Furthermore, how the projects have been achieved and the investment model have not previously been implemented in Turkey. Differences in scale caused by the increase in bed and patient capacities inevitably reflect the physical environment effects of buildings not only on the architectural scale but also on the urban scale. Architectural forms cannot evolve independently of their context. In this study, healthcare buildings constructed in the period included city hospitals and the period before, are approached with a historical perspective, the transformation of these buildings’ typologies and the factors which took an important role in the architectural design of healthcare structures are searched. The study aims to reveal the architectural dissimilarities between the other hospitals and the city hospitals, to search the urban impact of the city hospitals and try to describe the investment model of these hospitals.

A Decision support system for performance assessment and improvement in PPP healthcare projects
Öngel, Begüm; Tanyer, Ali Murat; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2018)
With the objectives including the reduction of the whole life costs, increasing construction and operation efficiencies and enhancing service quality, Public-Private Partnership (PPP) schemes have been used for healthcare projects across the world over the past two decades. These large-scale projects comprise a long-term partnership period between the public and private sector stakeholders, with a great deal of costs, risks and opportunities. Considering the large number of the parties involved and the inhe...
Critical analysis and evaluation of hospital main entrances according to design and performance criteria in the case of Turkey
Karakurt, Ayşin Sevgi; Erman, Ercüment; Seren, Berrak; Department of Architecture (2003)
The entrance space of a hospital has formed an effective period of hospital life since it has reflected the scope and the image of the entire facility. Therefore it has directly influenced by the new formation of healthcare facilities on preserving and growing role of the community health instead of threatening the illnesses. Since entrance space is apart from the other spaces in the facility that has shaped by the restrictive nature of the medical technology, the space most efficiently implement these new ...
Achieving electronic healthcare record (ehr) interoperability across healthcare information systems
Kılıç, Özgür; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
Providing an interoperability infrastructure for Electronic Healthcare Records (EHRs) is on the agenda of many national and regional eHealth initiatives. Two important integration profiles have been specified for this purpose: the "IHE Cross-enterprise Document Sharing (XDS)" and the "IHE Cross Community Access (XCA)". XDS describes how to share EHRs in a community of healthcare enterprises and XCA describes how EHRs are shared across communities. However, currently no solution addresses some of the importa...
Providing Interoperability of eHealth Communities Through Peer-to-Peer Networks
Kılıç, Özgün Ozan; Eichelberg, Marco (2010-05-01)
Providing an interoperability infrastructure for Electronic Healthcare Records (EHRs) is on the agenda of many national and regional eHealth initiatives. Two important integration profiles have been specified for this purpose, namely, the "Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Cross-enterprise Document Sharing (XDS)" and the "IHE Cross Community Access (XCA)." IHE XDS describes how to share EHRs in a community of healthcare enterprises and IHE XCA describes how EHRs are shared across communities. Howe...
Multi-period appointment planning and scheduling in healthcare.
Bilgiç, Utku Tarık; Batun, Sakine; Department of Industrial Engineering (2019)
Appointment planning and scheduling (APS) plays a crucial role in patient service quality as well as utilization of valuable resources in healthcare. In this study, we considered the integrated problem of appointment planning and scheduling in an outpatient procedure center (OPC) over a planning horizon of multiple periods. We formulated the problem as a two-stage stochastic mixed-integer linear program (SMILP) with uncertainty in surgery durations. The first-stage problem consists of period assignment of s...
