Abstract: As the community health care plays an important role in improving the health care equality and efficiency nowadays, It is one of the targets of the Health Care reform to establish a well distributed geographical community health network in China. In this paper, taking Haidian District in Beijing City as an example, the CHCs locations as well as the service allocation problem is solved by using an integer linear mathematical programming model. The results show that the optimization of the CHCs network could improve the community health care access while reducing the cost per encounter under the government’s budget, which makes the health care resource allocation more efficient. The decision making of government policy makers could also be well supported by the model.
