Healthcare

Simulation in healthcare is a model linking patients, queues, beds, nurses/doctors, theatres and facilities such as x-Ray. It simulates patients moving from area to area. The model can imitate aspects such as: treatment times, shifts and outcomes. Data can be based on averages, real or on a statistical distribution, resembling the expected reality.

Simulation can deal with complicated interactions

BEFORE YOU DO IT – MODEL IT

Simulation has achieved benefits such as:

  • Decreased A&E queueing times by 20%
  • Improved ambulance response times by 30%
  • Increased availability of high dependency beds by 15% – through better patient journey
  • Designed scheduling rules for theater increasing efficiency by 10%
  • Arbitrated changes in work practices based on an objective methodology
  • Proved a proposed change will work – often a model is used just to test a proposed system

  • A&E Design
  • Theatre Scheduling
  • Bed Management
  • Resource Planning/Shift Planning
  • Identifying Bottlenecks
  • Patients Journey
  • Priority Rules
  • Linking all of the above
