Testing Population Health Models of Care

Written by Roisin Anne Hughes

Sign up below to watch our on-demand webinar   About the Workshop June’s session focused on “testing population health models of care”.  We heard from our Director of Healthcare, Claire Cordeaux, about her experience of developing and implementing population health strategies in the UK National Health Service, Canada, and Australia.   Our unique approach predicts how an attributed population will flow through an entire healthcare network, to understand how: The population accesses different parts of the network New models of care will effect patient interactions with the system Changes will impact: Cost Capacity Revenues Wait times   This creates operational…

#SimulationSolves – No More Summer Queues!

Written by Brian Harrington

Do you want a summer where you don't have to queue for attractions? Simulation can help make that happen! Ski resorts are not just for winter anymore! Most of today’s ski resorts are open during the summer months for outdoor activities such as: hiking, mountain biking, zip-lining, and alpine sledding. One of the fastest growing outdoor activities on the mountain slopes is the zip line. A typical zip line course consists of several zip lines; starting with a learning line and advancing to longer, higher, and faster lines.   As the popularity of zip-lining gains momentum, so does the expansion…

Simulation vs. Spreadsheets for Process Modeling

Written by sander vermeulen

There are common reasons against using simulation as a method of process modeling and instead users favor spreadsheet modeling. There are a range of advantages of simulation and many ways to improve accuracy in analysis through the power of simulation… In this video I talk about the advantages of simulation over spreadsheets over a range of areas including: Variability Resources Animation Pathway Dependencies   When working on simulation in excel, for example, there are limitations - many of which can be addressed using simulation software. In my experience, most of our customers have benefited from the visual aspect of simulation…

What is the quickest way to board an airplane?

Written by Brian Harrington

Boarding a plane can be stressful - everyone wants to get on as quickly as possible with minimum disruption, but sometimes confusion occurs and people end up sitting in the wrong seat or taking a long time to put their bags in the overheard storage. This causes everyone to take longer to find their seats, and delaying the plane from being ready for departure. Airlines try different methods of boarding including: Back-To-Front, Random boarding, WILMA (Window, Middle, Aisle) and many others to try and ensure quick boarding and customer satisfaction, but how can you quickly prove which method is the best,…
