Long Term Conditions Financial Modelling Tool

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Long Term Conditions Financial Modelling Tool, produced by SIMUL8 Corporation with the support of Kings Health Partners & NHS England.


The simulation allows you to test the financial impact of person-centred care interventions for people living with multiple long term conditions.

Many health systems are developing new models of care to better meet the needs of people living with long term conditions and reduce unwarranted hospital visits. It can be a challenge to predict the likely financial outcome of these new models of care given the complexity of patients and their use of services. Implementing without an understanding of financial and other outcomes is a risk.

If you are interested in the Long Term Conditions Financial Modelling Tool, please contact the SIMUL8 Healthcare team for more information.

Initial users of this simulation have said:

"The Long Term Conditions Financial Modelling Tool persuaded us to change from a disease-based improvement approach to a person-centred approach and this is now forming the basis of our transformation programme."

Chair CCG (GP)

The tool is so intuitive to use with a very well-written user guide."

Public Health Consultant

This simulation enables health systems to test out ideas in advance in order to support a more robust business case for financial decision-making.

The simulation has been approved by NHS England following user testing and academic review and it is free to use.

For further insight into how to benefit from this simulation model see our case studies:

Health and care stakeholders have told us that robust financial modelling around Long term conditions is one of the missing ingredients to help them move towards more person-centred care for people with long term conditions and their carers.
