This article presents an agent-based modeling and simulation to design a decision support system for healthcare emergency department (ED) to aid in setting up management guidelines to improve it. This ongoing research is being performed by the Research Group in Individual Oriented Modeling at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona with close(More)
— Modeling and simulation have been shown to be useful tools in many areas of the Health-care operational management, field in which there is probably no area more dynamic and complex than hospital emergency departments (ED). This paper presents an ongoing research, an Agent-Based model-ing and simulation to design a decision support system (DSS) for the(More)
This paper presents the results of an ongoing project whose objective is to develop a model and a simulation that, used as Decision Support System, aid the heads of Hospital Emergency Departments to make the best informed decisions possible. The defined model is a pure Agent-Based Model, formed entirely of the rules governing the behavior of the agents that(More)
Introduction Diet is a cornerstone of comprehensive treatment of diabetes mellitus. The macrobiotic diet is low in fat and rich in dietary fiber, vegetables and whole grains, and therefore may be a good therapeutic option. Objective Assess the influence of the Ma-Pi 2 macrobiotic diet on physical, hematologic and biochemical variables, as well as on(More)
This paper presents an Agent-Based modeling and simulation to design a decision support system (DSS) for the operation of Healthcare Emergency Departments (ED). This DSS aims to aid EDs managers in setting up strategies and management guidelines to optimize the operation of EDs. This ongoing research is being performed by the Research Group on Individual(More)

Emergency departments are currently facing major pressures due to rising demand caused by population growth, aging and high expectations of service quality. With changes continuing to challenge healthcare systems, developing solutions and formulating policies require a good understanding of the complex and dynamic nature of the relevant systems. However, as(More)
