Data-Driven Simulation Model Helps Predict Hospital ED Interventions

Emergency department and hospital managers could benefit from the use of data-driven simulation models to measure the effects of potential changes to patient flow before implementation, according to a study published in BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, FierceHealthITreports.

For the study, researchers at the University of Florida developed a robust model using public data to examine two patient flow solutions in two settings:
