Applying SE in ED Visibility Tool Implementation

Track: NX CAM and Tecnomatix User Connection

Session Number: 170125
Date: Mon, May 8th, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM - 9:45 AM
Room: 211

Description:

Healthcare system in the United States has multiple issues concerning the quality, rising cost and outcome of care. Several initiatives have been led regarding the need for simulation and modeling approaches to address health care delivery challenge for patients and healthcare organizations. Local reach out efforts created several synergies one of which is a research collaboration between Eskenazi hospital and Indiana University to address resource allocation, cost estimation, and crowding at Eskenazi emergency department (ED). Systems Engineering tools are used to design ED process through its life cycle, starting from stakeholder need and requirement to the implementation of ED process models. An excutable model for the ED is designed using Plant Simulation platform (Tecnomatix) from Siemens. This simulation platform is used for replicating the ED system process, estimate ED measures of efficiency and effectiveness, and used in interpretation of results to offer solutions for ED system improvement and cost optimization. In conclusion, System level approach provides a deeper and clearer understanding of the internal and external entities that form the ED system. Results from simulation of the executable simulation model will be presented. The results will focus on the replication of the observed ED behavior.
