This paper discusses the development of a discrete-event simulation model for an integrated emergency post. This post is a collaboration between a general practitioners post and an emergency department within a hospital. We present a generalized and flexible simulation model, which can easily be adapted to several emergency departments as well as to other departments within the hospital, as we demonstrate with our application to the integrated emergency post. Here, generalization relates to the

After presenting the modeling approach, we shortly describe the implemented and validated model of the integrated emergency post, and describe how it is currently being used by health care managers to analyze the effects of organizational interventions.
