What is simulation?
Simulation allows you to creates a virtual prototype of your healthcare system and how it might respond to change proposals. The ‘system’ is represented by disease or condition pathways. Pathways are similar in structure, so the approach lends itself to repeatable simulation solutions.
Community teams can get together in a safe environment to understand cohort needs, explore radical new ideas, policy changes, emerging technologies or emerging best practice.
You can test out the proposed changes and evaluate impacts in terms of the best evidence available and your local knowledge of ‘what actually works’ - prior to implementation.
Consensus creates buy-in. Change plans - once agreed - becomes that much easier to implement. The whole process is driven by continuous system development and delivering population health improvement objectives.
