Abstract

En este trabajo se analiza la eficiencia en la provisión del servicio de Teleasistencia para las personas dependientes de 65 y más años. Para ello, se han estimado los costes que optimizan su funcionamiento según un modelo de Teoría de Colas. La aplicación de esta metodología se lleva a cabo tomando como caso de estudio el servicio de Teleasistencia en Castilla y León, por ser ésta una de las regiones españolas con mayor tasa de envejecimiento demográfico. Para evaluar el impacto del envejecimiento demográfico sobre la demanda del servicio de Teleasistencia, se utilizan las proyecciones de población del INE ajustadas a la población anciana dependiente para el período 2005-2015. In this paper we analyse the efficiency of Telecare service management for dependent people over 65 years old. Accordingly, we estimate the costs which optimize the operation of the Telecare service, based on a Queuing Theory model. The methodological application is carried out using the Telecare service in Castilla y León as study case, given that it is one of the Spanish regions with higher rate of demographic aging. In order to measure the impact of demographic ageing on the Telecare service demand, we consider the INE population projections adjusted for dependent elderly population to the time period 2005-2015.
