Join us to Explore the Science and Engineering Application of M&S in Healthcare
The SSH Healthcare Systems Modeling & Simulation Affinity Group (HSMSAG) invites you to join us for two days of thought-provoking, stimulating discussion about the use of modeling and simulation in healthcare.
Who should attend?
The SSH Forum is designed for new and experienced practitioners, trainers, researchers, vendors and policy makers from healthcare and engineering communities.

|9:00 - 9:45 AM||Opening Plenary/Keynote Speaker, “Three Reasons Why Clinicians Should Model”
By: Terry Young
Modelling and simulation are not commonly used in designing healthcare services – yet! In this talk we will explore three reasons why clinical staff, in particular, should model. These are that the insights yielded by modelling provided clinicians with insights into how to obtain the goals they want in the context of the service being run. Secondly, the output from models provided clinical staff with a voice when it comes to the design or improvement of services and an ability to articulate their preferences in meaningful terms to operational managers and strategic planners. Too often, clinical staff feel the only option left open to them is to withdraw support from changes on the grounds of safety. Finally, healthcare services rely heavily on information services and modelling provides a link for clinicians into the world of IT and communications. The talk will be illustrated with examples.
