Why use Simul8 for hospital bed planning?
Every decision in your hospital impacts on bed availability, and capacity impacts on overall patient flow. A change in one part of the hospital can improve or disrupt the overall system. Simul8 is the only solution to provide this complete overview, enabling hospitals to:
Predict and manage demand surges.
Gain insight into how policy changes will impact your bed requirements. Test, plan and experiment with bed demand and management in a risk-free environment and identify when you will run out of beds.
Experiment with bed capacity improvements.
Improve the patient experience by testing the impact of improvement decisions on cancellations, waits and costs. Be confident that your decision is the right one for costs and patient care.
Improve communication and decision-making.
Get departments working together on patient placement decisions. Sharing forecasts will provide stakeholders with the visibility and information needed for bed planning decision-making.
"Simul8 has stood up to scrutiny from clinicians and managers within the Trust; consequently the results output have led to constructive discussions about solutions to issues rather than ongoing debates about the integrity of the modeling."
