Extending external agent capabilities in healthcare social network

Abstract: Social systems can be modeled and analyzed in computer systems using graph structures called social networks. Each agent in the network has a set of capabilities to perform its intended tasks. However, in exceptional circumstances, some of the agents do not have required capabilities to carry out their required tasks.

In this project, we are proposing a novel computational model to extend the agent’s capabilities by using the benefit of the social network. Our assumption is that each agent can cover its inabilities and perform its desired tasks through collaboration with other agents in the network.

The model is applicable in social health care system, particularly in palliative care network where different groups of agents are interacting with each other to provide a variety of services to the patient. The overall goal of this project is to improve the quality of services in the network and enhance the resource allocations process.

The performance and functionality of this proposed model are evaluated based on various synthetic networks. By using this approach, it is expected to observe a significant reduction in the operational costs and enhancement of service quality.
