Why use simulation for planning population health services?
Population health planning simulation enables better care coordination across a system, predicts demand, and tests new models of care or treatment pathways.
Plan and design new models of care
Simulation modeling helps decision-making in any part of a health and social care system.
Using simulation organizations can develop strategies to become more efficient by effectively managing the risks of any system changes and design of new models of care.
Test changes and contingency plans
Users can test the possible impact of many different types of change; like increase in demand for services, changes to the way services are delivered, or the implementation of a new national policy initiative to help understand how their system might behave as a result of any change.
Visualize pathways and gain consensus
Simul8 allows you to create a visual representation of your care pathways that will assist in engaging all levels of management and help in gaining consensus from decision makers.
“Simul8 was the only tool available to build a case for developing prenatal services for this vulnerable population. Without it we wouldn’t have come as far along in the process in terms of having evidence for decision makers.”
