Tutorial: Advances and challenges in healthcare simulation modeling
2007 Winter Simulation Conference
Simulation has been used for modeling healthcare systems for over forty years. In many respects it is the ideal approach for addressing healthcare issues, yet the relatively small number of successful implementations would suggest that (outside academia) it has been underused in the health sector, compared with manufacturing industry or defense. In this paper we present a review of applications of simulation in healthcare, focusing on successful implementations, and we discuss some possibledoi:10.1109/wsc.2007.4419754 dblp:conf/wsc/Brailsford07 fatcat:sifnhho7cngmpl4yyqdkds3eme
