Retrieve patient data, acuities and relevant treatment details from EMR. In the case where EMR Data is not available, Data flow collection is performed and imported into the model.
Define provider schedules and availability. Need to include shift duration and breaks.
Identify the percent availability of external departments allocated to the ED. In the case where the data is not available, the model assumes maximum capacity available, allowing the simulation to generate the required levels for maximum ED Efficiency.
Tag the CAD layout to auto-generate distances of travel for patient, providers and transport.
Load the data arrival history data set and connect it to the model. Data can be retrieved dynamically from Excel, Databases, or EMR systems.
Define the treatment cycle time per acuity and patient type. Waiting times Must not be imported into the model, but generated and optimized by Simcad Pro® Health.
Wait times and delays need to be reduced and eliminated. This data is used for validation purposes only and MUST NOT be used as model inputs. The constraints are based on availability and capacity and NOT on time parameters to be optimized.
Shifts, cost, availability and other provider based constraints.
The model is now built with a validated flow and accurate behavior based on patient arrival data and length of stay validation. Current state capacity, constraints and bottleneck analyses allow for efficient capacity projections and planning.
Generate distributions to analyze future state fluctuations.
** Distributions don’t have to fit a predefined known curve.
With the model validated, provider analysis (efficiency and utilization), along with external department impact are used to analyze the ED. By analyzing the internals of the ED along with all external factors, Length of Stay reduction and capacity increase can be achieved and sustained beyond the initial improvement effort.
Based on improvement requirements, additional model details may be added...
