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.
