Despite the versatility of fuzzy logic across various domains, there remains a gap in understanding, among those, unfamiliar with disc q-Rung orthopair fuzzy operators, particularly in how they are applied in real-life specifically in healthcare management. Emerging Fuzzy Intelligent Systems for Smart Healthcare Management presents comprehensive methodological frameworks and the latest empirical research findings concerning disc q-rung orthopair fuzzy operators, with a specific focus on their applications in smart technologies for healthcare management. The authors strive to narrow the knowledge gap by clarifying the practical applications of disc q-rung orthopair fuzzy logic. The book solves a crucial problem by offering readers an invaluable opportunity to conduct a comparative analysis, contrasting the proposed methods with their existing knowledge base. Disc q-Rung Orthopair sets, being the generalization of q-Rung Orthopair fuzzy sets which in turn being the generalization of Pythagorean fuzzy sets, extend the capabilities of handling uncertainty beyond conventional fuzzy sets. This book explores an enhanced version of q-Rung Orthopair Fuzzy Sets, specifically focusing on Disc q-Rung Orthopair Fuzzy Sets, introducing various types of operators. These operators play a crucial role in solving decision-making and optimization problems. A notable contribution is the development of a hybrid operator, termed as the Disc q-Rung Orthopair Fuzzy Hybrid Weighted Averaging/Geometric (D-qROFHWA/G) operator. The D-qROFHWA/D-qROFHWG operators are applied to address multiple-attribute decision-making (MADM) problems in healthcare management. The authors present comprehensive methodological frameworks and the latest empirical research findings concerning disc q-rung orthopair fuzzy operators, offering insights and support from both practitioners and academia, and providing a cutting-edge exploration of disc q-rung orthopair fuzzy operators and their real-world implementations.
