Mathematics in healthcare focuses on supporting important activities in a hospital such as measurement of a patient's status, evaluation of quality of services, calculating dosages, analyzing test results, taking temperatures, etc. The concepts of mathematics such as probability and statistics are used in validating the effectiveness of new drugs, procedures or estimating the survival rate of cancer patients who are undergoing treatments. The mathematical topics such as the mechanics of a moving body, the statistics governing the atoms in a gas or developing more efficient algorithms in computational understanding have varied applications in the healthcare sector. This book outlines the concepts and applications of mathematics in healthcare in detail. It presents researches and studies performed by experts across the globe. This book will serve as a valuable source of reference for graduate and post graduate students.
