Model to save short-term scanner costs

A simulation model to assess CT and MRI scanner requirements based on potential demand.

(Developed for Grampian NHS by Simul8 and NHS Institute)

Simulation to plan healthcare services for population growth

A model used to help an East Midlands PCT plan for projected growth in demand due to population changes.

(Developed for An East Midlands PCT by Simul8 and NHS Institute)

Stockport PCT – Understanding Demand/Capacity and Waiting Times

A model of the contracted flow of activity in the Orthopaedic Assessment Service to determine if all patients could be seen within a 4 week period.

(Developed for Stockport PCT by Simul8 and NHS Institute)

East Riding PCT – Alternative Falls Care Pathway Model

A model to develop new falls pathway for patients in East Riding, Yorkshire.

(Developed for E.Riding PCT by SIMUL8 and NHS Institute)

Derbyshire Hospital Relocation Model

A geographic model designed to analyse scenarios of demand following a proposed hospital relocation in Derbyshire.

(Developed for Derbyshire Primary Care Trust by MapPlace)

Percept Simulation Model

A simulation model to assess the impact on care and resources for different scenarios at the hospital A&E department in order to plan the development of a new emergency assessment centre.

(Developed for Basingstoke District Hospital by Focused-On Ltd)

Orthopaedic Services Simulation

Simulation of Orthopaedic Services to model ways to achieve NHS 18 week targets

(Developed for North Cumbria Acute Hospitals NHS Trust by Focused-On Ltd.)

Care Pathway Simulator (CPS)

Discrete event simulation used to re-design an outpatient clinic scheduling. The CPS is designed for value-stream modelling and design in healthcare.

(Developed for Vascular Surgery, Good Hope Hospital NHS Trust by SAASoft Ltd. (Simon Dodds, Vascular Surgeon, Good Hope Hospital , Sutton Coldfield))

Emergency Service Simulation

Use of a simulation model to help re-design and improve emergency services at the RD&E Hospital.

(Developed for Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust by Focused-On Ltd)

MASHnet Case Studies

This listing addresses the frequently expressed need for more information about examples of implemented applications of modelling and simulation within the NHS. It provides a simple, internet-based directory of modelling applications that have been used within the health services.

Every system shown in this list should be in use, or have been used, in some capacity to support an aspect of health service delivery. The perceived success or otherwise of a system does not affect inclusion since many important lessons can be learned from systems that have ‘failed’ or are outdated.

PLEASE NOTE: Inclusion within this Case Study listing does not imply that MASHnet endorses or recommends a specific system listed.
