Improvements in the Emergency Dept.: Understanding and Managing Computer Simulations

Changes to any emergency department- large or small, rural or urban, busy or, well, busy-cause numerous and sometimes unforeseen consequences to healthcare delivery. Whether change is deliberate or is visited upon a provider from outside forces, it will impact patients, staff and the community. Computer simulations offer a safe and cost-effective way to experiment with changes to processes, staffing and even the footprint of a department or entire hospital. In this way, simulations guide administrators in making the best decisions for their facilities.
