Emergency Medical Services Modelling in Wales

This illustrates how forecasting, queueing theory, scheduling, location analysis and discrete event simulation can be integrated into workforce capacity planning tools to assist the Welsh Ambulance Service Trust (WAST) with capacity planning issues and the deployment of emergency vehicles

(Developed for Welsh Ambulance Service Trust (WAST) by School of Mathematics, Cardiff University)

Redesigning Emergency Stroke Pathways to Maximise Thrombolysis Rates

A simulation study of emergency stroke care showing the impact of different interventions. Application has greatly improved the delivery of thrombolysis at the client hospital.

(Developed for Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital by The Peninsula Collaboration for Health Operational Research and Development (PenCHORD))

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

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a system does not affect inclusion since many important lessons can be learned from systems that have ‘failed’ or are outdated.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