Case Studies in Healthcare Simulation

Mike O’Sullivan and Cameron Walker

Simulation models enable healthcare service providers to evaluate performance of their current system, examine how this performance changes with changes to the demand for their service (e.g., future population growth), as well as experiment with changes to that system before implementing any changes. This presentation will include case studies of simulation projects with real-world healthcare services and learnings from those projects.
