“The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) focuses on some of the most pressing and serious global health challenges facing governments, health systems and populations. The Summit brings together internationally renowned experts, who work with advisory groups to publish evidence-based reports on a range of healthcare topics each year.”
Patient Safety is one of key topics discussed.

A Banquet of Consequences: Management Flight Simulators for Climate Change Policy
John D. Sterman, Jay W. Forrester Professor of Management, Professor of Engineering Systems, Director, System Dynamics Group, MIT Sloan School of Management. The System dynamics is a modeling approach to understanding the behavior of complex systems over time, developed by MIT System Dynamics Group in 1950’s.

Clinical Capacity Planning with Discrete Event Simulation
We will discuss how to model clinical systems using discrete event simulation, and how to analyze models for clinical capacity planning. We treat a case study of the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and describe modeling, analysis, experimentation, and recommendation using DES. Including a brief discussion of the use of DES for implementation science.
T. Eugene Day, D.Sc., is a Sr. Improvement Advisor and Principal Investigator with The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He specializes in discrete event simulation of health care delivery systems, with the goal of understanding the complex nature of clinical systems, and then applying this understanding to improve care delivery quality, efficiency, and safety.
