How simulation is used in healthcare

Quality of Care and Patient Safety

In complex systems like healthcare, where multiple variables and significant variation are a daily reality, simulation can help you drive forward changes that improve efficiency and patient safety.

SIMUL8 Professional enables you to test healthcare process changes in a risk-free environment and build buy-in for improvements with stakeholders.

Using simulation to improve quality of care

Patient safety is a major concern. Mistakes are far too common, with 10% of procedures resulting in some form of error. This results in more than 1,000 unnecessary deaths a day and costs $1 trillion a year in the US alone.

Simulation allows you to test these changes in a risk-free environment, meaning patients have not been affected. The simulation can then be used to propose changes to stakeholders and get buy-in on the benefits before implementation.

This is where simulation can help. It enables healthcare improvers and planners to look forward and design a virtual system that works prior to implementation, while reducing the risk of errors and engaging stakeholders in driving forward healthcare improvement.
