Simulation in Health Care



Sometimes, challenges or issues in healthcare  delivery are not prescriptive in nature and cannot be solved using pure  optimization. Simulation provides healthcare administration leaders and  decision makers a method to evaluate problems using probabilistic  components. For example, a primary care queueing problem might logically  follow a Poisson process and be modeled using simulation techniques.

For  this Assignment, review the resources for this week, and examine the  different simulation techniques highlighted. Reflect on how these  simulation techniques might apply to specific challenges or issues for  healthcare delivery. Then, complete the assigned problems for the  Assignment.
