dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: Telemedicine is the delivery of healthcare, where distance is an issue. This paper explores the use of operations research techniques to contribute to the successful implementation of telemedicine systems. A study of literature concerning the application of operations research together with telemedicine, showed research gaps, but also identi ed a few examples with respect to linear programming, simulation modelling, Markov decision-making processes, Bayesian networks, queuing theory and meta-heuristics. There are many areas in telemedicine where operations research can be used to ensure the success and sustainability of telemedicine as a viable alternative to providing specialist healthcare that is economically feasible.en_ZA
