Merging cath labs: Using simulation to design a solution

Learn how Boston Scientific used simulation to test the impact of merging cath labs, examination rooms with diagnostic imaging equipment that are used to visualize the arteries of the heart, from two different sites in a Canadian hospital.

In this on-demand webinar session, Boston Scientific's Yixin Wang discusses how simulation formed a key part of the change process, engaged clinicians and administrators in the redesign, and ensured consensus on the best solution.

You'll learn how the teams worked together to understand the complexities of future demand from the local population, procedure types and timings, staffing, scheduling, as well as determining the optimum design for the combined unit.
