Benefits of Simcad Health®

Simcad Health® provides all the elements required to create an accurate replica of your operation in a virtual environment. Improving the ED, OR Department, Radiology, labs, bed allocation and internal supply chain are supported as integrated functionality within Simcad Health® Dynamic Simulation software. This integrated functionality enables you to play the “what-if” game, analyze scenarios, and identify changes and Kaizen events to determine ROI and best path forward prior to spending time, money, and limited resources on untested changes.

Healthcare simulation provides a means to test the impact of improvement ideas in a virtual environment, without the risk of implementing unproven ideas to the actual patient flow. 2D and 3D animations are created to convey ideas of change, while detailed analytics and value stream mapping generate the required ROI calculation for each improvement.


Typically a CAD layout, either 2D or 3D, will be imported. Next, processes, travel paths, timing parameters, and other defined data are input into the model. Models are built graphically, without code. This is an important distinction between traditional and dynamic simulation environments. Patient arrivals times, patient timings based on diagnosis, patient pathways, etc… can be defined in real-time.
