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a system does not affect inclusion since many important lessons can be learned from systems that have ‘failed’ or are outdated.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.
