A Healthcare Center Simulation using Arena

Joseph Barjis, Matt Hall

Abstract

In this case study we report a detailed simulation project conducted in a family healthcare system. This study was conducted when the center was planning to implement an EMR (Electronic Medical Record) system. In order to document the center’s business processes, how different entities interact, and how each entity’s role will be affected after the system is implemented, we have designed a detailed business process model for further simulation. Once the model identified the center’s main activities and involved actors, a simulation and animation models were developed using the Arena™ simulation tool. The format of this paper is of a case study.
