Powerful Healthcare Simulation Software

Simulation enables complex healthcare systems and processes to be tested in a safe, virtual environment without risk to patients and staff – helping you to make better decisions, improve systems of care and maximize resources.

SIMUL8's software simulates constraints, costs, waiting times and reflects any real world variation and changing demand. This allows organizations to thoroughly and confidently assess the impact of process improvements before implementation.

Trusted by organizations around the globe for healthcare performance improvements

Organizations like Johns Hopkins, Geisinger Health System and the UK NHS use our discrete event simulation software to solve common challenges, make significant cost savings and drive quality improvement in healthcare.

Healthcare quality improvement case studies

Memorial Health System

Memorial Health System case study

Ensuring the feasibility of a $31 million OR expansion project: using simulation to optimize capacity planning, system design, and patient flow.

"SIMUL8 has been a valuable application for expanding our range and depth of analytical abilities. It should be considered an important tool in the design of every robust healthcare process improvement program."

NHS case study

Understanding the impact of an aging population on demand for healthcare services: using simulation to identify the cost and impact of new services on bed capacity needs.

“The simulation results showed the impact of introducing the new service, but also helped us see how demand would grow as a result of the growing population, when our virtual ward capacity runs out, and how much it would all be expected to cost.”

How is simulation used in healthcare?

SIMUL8's simulation software is used by healthcare organizations to support complex, evidence-based population health decisions and drive operational excellence across key departments and value streams.

Population health planning

Planning for the health of a population is crucial to ensure the best outcomes, manage demand and ensure effective services. Better care co-ordination, increased focus on chronic diseases and improved processes can make a big difference in patients' lives and reduce costs for healthcare providers.

Simulation can be used to understand the impact of key population health issues and support healthcare networks to achieve the quality of care, cost and better population health.

Healthcare process improvement

Healthcare organizations are challenged with delivering the highest quality of care with the most efficient use of resources and budget.

Simulation drives decision making and operational excellence across a wide range of departments including:

  • Bed management and planning
  • Emergency departments and care services
  • Capacity and resource utilization management
  • Workforce planning
  • Hospital design and construction
