Hospital Patient Wait Times : One of the most unpredictable environments in the Healthcare Industry is the Emergency Department, ED. We have all been there, spending countless hours in a waiting room only to finally receive medical attention in a hallway, or if you were lucky enough to make it to an examination room, you sat hopeless, wondering if a doctor even knew that you existed. Excessive patient wait times can be tolling on the patient both physically and emotionally; affecting the morale of the patient, doctors, nurses and medical staff. Let's take a look at some of the most common contributing factors (and their implications) which lead to one of America's biggest challenges in the healthcare community today; optimizing the ED to reduce patient wait times and increase overall efficiency.

Next generation dynamic simulator operates under an entirely different paradigm than traditional static tools. The graphical interface used to build models does not generate or compile code since it interfaces directly with the multi-core simulation engine. When the simulation starts, the animation instantly displays, both in 2D and 3D , the current state of the engine. As inefficiencies develop, real time modifications can be made to model properties and constraints. These “on-the-fly” changes allow users to instantly realize potential gains and perform dynamic optimization.

Most improvement initiatives begin with a Value Stream mapping exercise. The value stream map takes into consideration one aspect or product of the operation and analyzes the effect of waste. With a single product with no variations that flows sequentially, a static value stream is adequate. But, when analyzing multiple product interactions, non sequential flows, and the interaction among multiple value streams, the static environment fails. Moreover, static streams do not take into consideration fluctuations in demand, workforce, and other dynamic operational constraints. This patented technology is the first of its kind on the market today.

Most simulation tools available on the market today provide an interface to allow for model creation, a simulation engine, and a post-simulation analysis tool. The user interface is setup as either a pure coding environment, or a visual interface that creates code in the background, either way, coding is required to do any type of useful modeling. After the code is built and compiled, the simulation engine would run for a set amount of time after which the user is presented with the data to be either animated or charted.
