SIMUL8 Healthcare Simulation Software


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


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



Trusted by organizations around the globe for healthcare performance improvement

Organizations like Johns Hopkins, Geisinger Health System and the UK NHS use SIMUL8 discrete event simulation software to solve common challenges, make significant cost savings and drive quality improvement in healthcare.

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.


β€œThe 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.”

Drive operational excellence in healthcare


Simulation software enables healthcare organizations worldwide to build a business case for change across key departments and value streams.


Moving bed planning and capacity beyond spreadsheets

Moving bed planning and capacity beyond spreadsheets


Inpatient stays are one of the most expensive areas of healthcare. It is estimated that better bed management can save approximately $370,000 per hospital each month and improve patient outcomes.

Simulation can be used to create long term bed capacity plans and predict when a bed crisis is looming – providing valuable time to take preventative action.

Test and optimize emergency department patient flow

Test and optimize emergency department patient flow


Emergency departments are challenged with managing patient flow, wait times and balancing resources against varying service demand.

Simulation enables organizations to safely test and implement improvements around refining department layouts, increasing the number of inpatient beds, staffing levels, and improving operational processes to more efficiently serve patients.

Understand the impact of population health issues using simulation


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.
