Ambulatory, accident & emergency (A&E), primary care and other services need to be able to react to a number of changes, including demographic and associated funding pressures. Combining Modeling and Simulation (M&S)(More)
A web-based system dynamics simulation environment that allows data exchange and comparison that lead to policy evaluation and re-shaping is presented. The environment uses a set of different healthcare models that can be published, shared and run on the web. The environment supports the collection of different data input sets that are used by modellers to(More)
